I've seen buildings painted in this "fool the eye" style in many cities.

    Germany??

    Germany ,that's amassing that the German police/TUV allows this! As they used to have problems even with certain Paint colors on vehicles that could distract a driver ..Petty cool Advertising.

    Come on guys. You didn't really get sucked into believing they are real did you? They are computer generated. Take a look at the tree at the top of the trailer. Also, look at the cab and frame/wheels of the trailer, the brick wall in front of the cab and the wall behind the trailer. Everything is the same except for the painting. You guys are easy. Anyone want to buy a piece of waterfront property I have in Florida?

    Fakes... and for reaons that Rene did not spot

    These are clear fakes:

    The back of trucks have doors with hinges, and locking devices. The sides of trucks are riveted panels. There is no sign of any of these things.

    Years ago I put floors in semi's at Stoughton Trailer (a very hard physically demanding job). Some very interesting paint jobs and graphics went on those trucks. But you could always see the hinges, door latches, fold and rivet lines, etc.

    Not only are these fakes - they are extremely poor fakes.

    Marketing Tools

    Just the lighting will tell you that these are Markups for a Marketing tools.

    That does not mean that they did not actually do this for real!

    I used to see a lot of this in New York/Jersey when i was working in the Photo industry

    Hot Rod may be able to clarify were these "Marketing Tools" came from and if they are up and running on the German Autobahn!

    Well if they are i may see them for my self in March.. Richard

    Could be photoshopped but

    One of the Do-It Best truck drivers that come to the family hardware store told me he got pulled over because the officer thought his roll up door was half way open. The back of the truck is painted to look that way. It's pretty convincing unless you look at it really close.

    Thank You Perry

    for pointing that out. We foolish contractors might have been fooled again. Keep up the good work.
