Artist johannes-p-osterhoff pwned the squeaky clean iPad advert in a Berlin subway station by putting porn in right before the device launched in Germany.

The attention gained from his protest over the “porn-free device” crashed his server, so osterhoff (who prefers to go all lowercase) got back to us just now on how he did it, sending Cult of Mac exclusive photos of his guerilla art operation at the Rosenthaler Platz stop in Berlin’s subway.

A few of our especially astute readers thought the osterhoff’s Photoshop skills could use work, but as you can see in the above pic, his protest over the allegedly porn-free iPad was an old school cut-and-paste operation.

Hats off to this Robin Hood of mixed media, even though he tells us his protest over Steve Jobs’ proclaiming the iPad “porn-free device” has already been taken down.  In its place, an ad for electronics reseller Media Markt.

It will be interesting to see what he gets up to next, other projects by the self-described interface artist include a giant “submit” button to commemorate web generation 1.0 and one addressing  Windows security mania.
