A Button in Brick Lane

“I don’t care how old I am, If I walk by a toy that has a “Try Me” sticker on it, I’m pushing that button! Would you? – unknown

A Mural by Otto Schade which I found in Brick Lane, London, UK. I am just not sure if it is still there because this was still from our family’s trip back in 2018. It is entitled “Just don’t do it”. It is one intriguing mural and title… I wonder if it is an Advertisement for a famous shoe brand?

    Love the quote. But this doesn´t look like a toy, so… don´t? Cute pic of you two.

      Haha I won’t. By the way, that is my daughter and my hubby!

    Definitely a warning! I’ve seen the wrapped bandages style before, but it’s spooky here. 🙂 🙂 Lovely family shot!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Jo. Yea he is a popular street artist, so maybe you’ve seen some of his works.

    Osch likes to leave clear messages in his artwork. There’s no missing this warning about a certain finger and a certain red button.
    I think it is still there, but with lockdown restrictions it has been a while since I walked along here.

      Thanks for the comment Debbie. Maybe it is different there, because here in Melbourne, murals in some laneways just come and go very quickly.

    I think that could be another more “dangerous” red button in the White House 🙂
    I’ve seen that style somewhere too.
    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Teresa.

    It’s a bit like the sign that says ‘Wet Paint” that tempts you to touch it to see if it’s true.

  6. I see all the arms pulling back that finger. Very interesting presentation, Teresa.

    1. Teresa says:

      Haha it seems like that! Have a great week Miriam!
