T-Mobile has just unveiled its own sand sculpture, which is on display
at the US Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition in
San Diego. The sculpture was built by Archisand Professional Sand
Sculptors, and is aimed at the magenta carrier's competitors, AT&T and
Verizon. T-Mobile is calling it the #HallOfLame sand sculpture and it
shows decisions that both carriers have made recently. This includes
purchasing Yahoo and AOL, calling out AT&T for overcharging users with
over 75 different taxes and fees, and of course talking about the
endless maze that is calling customers service - of course that takes
aim at T-Mobile's most recent Un-carrier announcement.

This sand sculpture from T-Mobile is pretty elaborate, and if you are
in the San Diego area, it's a good idea to stop by and check it
out. In the press release announcing this sand sculpture, T-Mobile's
CEO, John Legere is quoted as saying "no matter how many times I've
told the carriers to listen to customers and do what they tell you,
they just won't listen - they've got their heads in the sand, so we'll
try to reach them where they're at...in the sand."Legere also says
that it's time for change, and calls for AT&T and Verizon to stop
gouging customers and making it difficult to contact customer service.

The article includes a picture of the sculpture: it man be the
canonical example of blunt-force art.
