UPDATE: Curbed.la is claiming that Skullphone didn't hack Clear channels billboards, but actually bought time on them.

And while that's kind of sad, it's also kind of funny: The guy got his money's worth. Also, the idea is now floating out there. Someone is going to try to hack into these huge glowing horror shows. If it's going to be you, let us know when you do it.


Supertouchblog has amazing images of last week's Skullphone Haxxors hack of a dozen Clear Channel electronic billboards around L.A. Seems the 18-year-old artist figured out a way to insert his brilliant image into the scrolling billboards. Here are a few of the photos swiped from Supertouch, which has the rest.
