Mr. Robot series premiere TV billboards...

Mr Robot series premiere billboard
These days it seems NSA spying, Sony leaks, Federal hacking attacks and Fat Cat CEOs getting away with, well everything, have all made the world a more complicated place to live.

And on TV shows these days you can't swing a cat without finding a hacker character who can't save the day by flying their fingertips over a keyboard cracking passwords, encrypted code and end-of-the-world countdowns.

Obviously the time seems right for a crime drama with a hoodie-wearing hacktivist as the show's anti-hero, enter the USA Network series Mr. Robot.

Rami Malek plays the cynical 'Elliot', a cyber-security engineer by day and a hacking vigilante by night, who's recruited by an underground collective of digital-age activists, led by Christian Slater's 'Mr. Robot', who want to wipe away all record of global debt and take down multinational companies like the firm he's paid to protect. Talk about a conflict of interests.

These clever anti-establishment themed billboards for Mr. Robot's series premiere are pretty evocative of what many people are feeling nowadays.

The large landscape billboards were snapped in two locations along the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood on June 7 and June 16, whilst the smaller ads were spotted above La Brea Avenue on June 18 and Fairfax Avenue on June 21, 2015.

The themes of these ads, and the show itself, reminds Daily Billboard of these Paranoia movie billboards, which actually used the same 'privacy is a myth' slogan in one of its ad creatives.

Remember, it's only paranoia if it's not true.
