Two Writers Climbed a Bridge and Needed the Police to Save Them

Yeah, tagging a 100-year-old bridge in a major city is a true fame spot for a graffiti writer, but you got to get down from that bridge too. As reported by WPVI-ABC this morning, two writers climbed 382 feet to the top of a tower on the Ben Franklin Bridge connecting Philly and Camden with spray cans and photography equipment.

Climbing up a bridge seems more hot boy these days than ever, as you’d expect some security system to meant to deter actual bombers. And the two writers indeed tripped an alarm that got the cops there in no time. Sadly, no giant wickets were put up, but the bridge was shut down for an hour and a half as the police fetched the two from the tower. The only fame gained from this mission is the unwanted notoriety of being rescued by the boys.

On a side note, where would anyone possibly throw up a decent-sized anything on top of that tower? There’s plenty of highly visible wall space below.
