The image I spotted looks like an Andre sticker, except it's missing its lower half. Was this done on purpose? Is a statement being made about the "Andre" sticker(er)s? Or did someone try to remove the original (entire) sticker and only got the lower half? I'm guessing the lower half got removed...but why didn't they peel the rest?
