Remember how Moustache Man (aka 26-year-old Virginia native Patrick Waldo) was arrested in June and then earlier this month we awarded him our "Best Tag" award? Well we've already figured out next year's award recipient: whoever is going around writing "Solidarity" on the upper lips of people in subway billboard ads in Waldo's signature curly cursive style (pictured).

Subway Art Blog spotted a few examples of the new tag, though it doesn't seem to be as widespread as the "Moustache" tag, yet. It is, however, in keeping with Waldo's overwhelming politeness in addressing imitators and billboard-hogging taggers who kept him from scrawling his mustaches. Free Moustache Man!
