Q3. The co-founder, Kalle Lasn has reportedly started this foundation after an epiphany that there was something profoundly wrong with consumerism. It happened in a supermarket parking lot.

This act of vandalism was his first (quite literal) “culture jam" -- defined as an act designed to subvert mainstream society.  This foundation has launched numerous international campaigns, including Buy Nothing Day, TV Turnoff Week and Occupy Wall Street, and is known for their "subvertisements" that spoof popular advertisements. Name this Media foundation?
