Are you offended and/or frustrated that companies like Chevron think we’re stupid enough to fall for their blatant greenwash? We agree.

That’s why we just had to punk Chevron’s new ad campaign. And we’ve had so much fun doing it that we just have to share.

Rainforest Action Network - Change Chevron - spoof ad

We’ve posted high-res PDFs of our posters spoofing Chevron’s new ad campaign on our fake Chevron marketing site. If you want to help us punk Chevron, download the posters now and put them up all over your township, city, municipality, community, or wherever-the-heck-you-live.

Then, just as importantly, post your handiwork for the world to see. Post it on Change Chevron’s Facebook wall, twitpic it with the hashtag #weagree, upload to Flickr with the tag “weagree,” or email/YouSendIt to us at changechevron@ran.org and we’ll get it out there.

If your punking juices are really flowing, though, perhaps you want to design your own spoof poster. If so, you’re in luck! We’re having a bit of a contest, along with the Yes Men and Amazon Watch, to see who can come up with the best punked Chevron ad. Pick a photo, write your own slogan, and send it along. The Yes Men have all the details about how to enter the contest on their blog: “Help us keep Chevron’s campaign on the skids!

So far, activists in Washington, DC, LA, and San Francisco have wheatpasted spoof Chevron posters around their cities and sent us pics:

Get us yours so we can include it in this slideshow!

Happy punkin’!
