A group of black-suited television-toting men has been sighted Downtown wandering through the skyway system.

The men, with flat televisions suspended above their heads, are part of a promotional event for American Express Financial Advisors that ran from the end of March until April 8.

The four men, known as Pixmen, wander skyways, or anywhere with a crowd, for two-hour stretches airing American Express commercials on their televisions and attracting curious onlookers.

These high-tech promotions are put on by Pixel Systems, a digital advertising firm out of Montreal.
