Shopdropping was probably the last kind of giving on most people’s minds as they shopped during the holiday season. Shopdropping, also known as droplifting, is the incredible act of reverse shoplifting: going into stores and putting things onto the shelves. Banksy is probably the best known shopdropper, famous for putting out his own subvertised versions of Paris Hilton’s CDs and hanging his subversive art in galleries.

This is a pretty creative way to get your point across.

I like ideas like this that are harmless.

I'm glad to see there is a name for it now. I had heard of the people who took Barbies and GI Joes and switched voice boxes and put them in stores, but I didn't realize that others were doing it.

I sure wish I had a Barbie that talked like GI Joe.

I've seen this done before on youtube, I can't find the video at the moment. Some kids were putting copies of Alex Jones' terrorstorm behind the dvd covers in a video store. So the dvd's stayed put under the label until someone opened up the dvd case, releasing it. It's a clever way of getting your point across, although there is a good chance that they aren't going to be "buying" what your "selling." You can't force information on people that don't want to hear it.

edit: spelling

The younger generations are coming up with some clever ideas to voice their opinions. I'm surprised this has not been thought of years ago.

Not sure why but when I read this clip I thought of that old movie Turk182.

in a way, this is like guerilla marketing but an idea is being marketed instead of a product. i like this.

This is the first I've heard of this.

Gives me an idea to get Ron Pauls name out in the open more. I could make slogans on pieces of paper and put them in as many books as possible in the public library.

I travel a lot...there's no end to the possibilities of shop dropping.

Sounds like fun to me.
