Dueling Subway Ads

Dueling NYC subway ads, 2014.

“Be reborn,” and “Be fulfilled.” Dueling subway ads in a NYC MTA 1 train, 2014.

While riding an uptown 1 train earlier this week, I saw two subway ads posted just a few feet from each other. I found it to be a curious juxtaposition. The ad on the left is for the New York Lottery stating to “be reborn” with money. ┬áThe ad on the right is for the YMCA stating to “be fulfilled” by being yourself at a local Y community.

Which would you rather be?
