'Collectif des Déboulonneurs' is a guerrilla anti-advertising group in France that protests the in-your-face pervasiveness of outdoor public billboards and posters.

'Les Déboulonneurs' roughly translates to 'dismantlers,' according to the BBC, and their modus operandi is to graffiti anti-advertising slogans atop public billboards. What's more, they often tip law enforcement officers off to their location so that they're arrested--a move that's perhaps more appropriate for the paparazzi than the police.
