    RALEIGH, N.C. -- When Joseph Carnevale chopped up three stolen orange and white traffic barrels from a construction site to create a massive sculpture of a roadside monster thumbing a ride, the North Carolina college student said he saw it as a form of street art.

    Sony's apparent underground graffiti-ad campaign is rankling some citizens. While Sony has not officially endorsed the campaign, the series of identical PSP-toting graffiti characters appeared in the last few weeks in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Chicago.
