Although this building is technically in SOMA, those couple of blocks South of Market around 6th and 7th street are nothing but the lower Tenderloin. The SF Citizen reports that the same mural has been seen in various cities around the US, but created by Californian artist Jacob White of Los Gatos, CA. Technically it’s an ad for Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, and it seems it was a winner in the PBR Art Contest, in which Pabst lovers submit art in an attempt to get a year’s worth of PBR and some cash prizes.
Like SF Citizen, when we first saw this we wondered if Laughing Squid was aware of it. Well, he is now.
