US DIY retailer Lowe’s and agency BBDO New York are suing Twitter’s new Vine six-second video mobile downloads to run a campaign about DIY.
Do-it-yourself is a mystery to many of us (ie me) but I suppose this shows you how to screw.
Screw means other things in various cultures and I can’t help but think that that might have been preying on the mind of the originator of this.

Of course you can, particularly if you’re trying to grab people with the same attention span as a goldfish. You know who you are: most art directors, curators, clients, artists… I was Von Brockdorffed on Vine at an exhibition last weekend and consequently, some diamond billionaire wants to buy my “lust to Dust” painting.
