Forget Clickthrough EULAs; Are There Really Walkby EULAs For NYC Parks?

Now, if this is actually real, then, things are even worse. It's difficult to believe (by any stretch of the imagination) that such a thing is even remotely legally enforceable. Already there are questions about the legality of "clickthrough" EULAs, and one would have to imagine that the enforceability of a "walkby" EULA is even more in doubt. So, whether or not this is true, fake or a joke... it's a rather depressing sign (literally) of the times.
Update: In the comments, Shawn points out that this is likely associated with HSBC's "Soapbox" ad campaign, which only makes it marginally less ridiculous (but no more enforceable).
