Dude Keeps Hilariously Protesting Everyday Annoyances With Funny Sign



He made it his life's passion for protesting about the most annoying things in life we can all relate to. Dude With Sign was started by Seth Phillips when he held up the “Stop replying-all to company-wide emails” sign that made people giggle while they walked by.

The New Yorker partnered up with Elliot Tebele, who founded Jerry Media for the stunt. They didn't imagine it would blow up, and now they have over 7.7 million followers on Instagram.

Seth knows what signs would get people to smile when they walk by him. His silent protest on the streets of New York City is often hilarious annoyances that people, in general, can totally relate to. They are relevant things that you don't talk about too often in real life, like those YouTube ads and 'Cookies' requests.

Seth shares that a lot of his ideas come from his co-workers and environment. He shares with Forbes, “So we work in a pretty funny and creative space, so once the account kicked off, more ideas came in from the team. When creating the protests, we try to come up with something funny that is relatable that people don't particularly talk about."

Now that he's famous, people would wait for him around the spots where he usually holds up his sign. Seth shared, “The corner usually fills up with people within minutes, and everyone has their phones out. When I'm finished, a lot of people will ask to take pictures with me or videos, which is still something to get used to.”

He personally found it hilarious that a man holding up a sign could be considered a famous personality that people would ask for pictures with him.
