Literally trillions of dollars tacked to a wall. A single five spot tacked to a wall and stamped with whatever message here in the US wouldn't make it more than a minute, I'd guess.
Note the observers aren't scrambling over each other to tear the notes off the wall. Too much effort for too little return. Trillions, mind you.
Perhaps the finest illustration of the virtually worthless Zimbabwean currency, the corruption of Robert Mugabe and one of the best examples of popular/political dissent I've ever seen.
