Specsavers Brilliant Response to Ridiculous “Let’s Do London” Campaign Artwork

The Mayor of London has been ridiculed on social media after unveiling the artwork for the city’s latest #LetsDoLondon campaign.

The post attracted over 11k replies, almost all of which mocked the artwork for appearing as though it were created by a child using Microsoft Paint.

Then again, if art reflects culture, this may just be the perfect representation of Khan’s London.
