Ubisoft’s Post-It Note War

I have no idea who’s winning, but there’s a war raging in Paris as we speak. The battlefield? Ubisoft’s Paris office building and the offices of French bank BNP Paribas across the street. But instead of weapons, these two foes are wielding video game characters portrayed in Post-It Notes.
