Advertisement of the Day: This Subway Ad Looks Like Something Out of Mad Max

Suddenly, Black Mirror doesn't seem so crazy.

We get a little bit closer to that dystopian future of our dreams everyday, and sometimes an advertisement notices how close we are.

A subway billboard in Beijing has done just that.

The advertisement is for a sports haze mask and features a female running with a face mask that looks like a souvenir from Fury Road. A sports haze mask is for people attempting to exercise in heavy smog areas, like Beijing.

Twitter reacted, as it's wont to do, welcoming the new oncoming dystopia.
