This Country Has No Commercial Advertising, And Its Cities Look Weirdly Barren As A Result

• http://www.businessinsider.com,
 The following photos are creepy, all subtle variations on the shade of gray. Major urban spaces that would be covered in ads elsewhere — bus stops, concrete facades, public plazas, major roadsides — are eerily empty in North Korea (if not occupied by communist or anti-American propaganda). 

Obviously, the lack of billboard advertising is due to the country's communist disposition. But it's still an interesting glance at what a world with no ads might look like.

Most striking about these images is the sheer volume of space that is simply left blank. The photos are street scenes from Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, and they bluntly illustrate the stark contrast to the thriving bustle of the country's Asian neighbors.
