THE CITY OF LAGOS
|THE BAR CODE|
the questions on the lips of curious Lagosians yesterday, who woke up to
the sight of optical Smartphone readable codes better known as barcodes
in different areas of the metropolis.
The imposing signs appeared
everywhere, from shopping malls to school buildings, from billboards to
T-shirts, everyone appeared to be rocking a barcode! The barcodes had a
mysteriously simple message written below; ‘Scan me for a new attitude’.
According to eyewitnesses who scanned the barcode, they were confronted
with yet another mysterious message in neon green. It read, ‘DON’T BLEND
IN: BE UNIQUE, FIND OUT HOW ON 05: 04: 12’.
Feelers reaching us say that this mysterious new message is coming from
telecoms giant Etisalat who are planning to unveil yet another
innovative package for Nigerians on April 5. The company remains mum
about the issue, but there is clearly a lot of buzz at their numerous
offices and headquarters situated around Lagos.
