Public urinators in Hamburg, Germany’s St. Pauli district have been warned: It’s “peeback time.”
The neighbourhood known for partying had a growing problem: drunks were relieving themselves on walls, home entrances and even on playgrounds.
Fines and prohibitions did little to deter the gross habit, so annoyed community residents took matters into their own hands and used the urinators’ pee against them.
Thanks to hydrophobic paint coating favourite urination spots, the walls in St. Pauli now “pee back.”
“Don’t pee here! We’ll pee back” signs now read on treated walls.
“We sprayed most-frequented walls in our district with a super-hydrophobic coating. This coating is so water-repellent that liquids splash right off the surface,” the community group explained in a YouTube video.
