In a curious move that could either be a guerrilla promo stunt or just a project undertaken by die-hard fans, "Watchmen" graffiti has been popping up all over New York City, Toronto and London. While the street art style varies from piece to piece, the message is always the same: "Who watches the Watchmen?"

Although this project could conceivably be a well-planned PR stunt, based on the high-profile locations in which these spray-painted "Watchmen" promos appear, David Press of MTV's Splash Page blog chalks it up to overzealous fans. Stats for Guerrilla Graffiti Film Promos Trending: Older & Average
