Font Geek Graffiti Artist

I’m not sure what to think of this graffiti found in Troy, NY this weekend … is the graffiti artist a “font geek,” or why else would the tag be “hellvetica” spelled backwards? But then one can point out that “Helvetica” the font is actually misspelled here, with an extra “L.” So does this mean the graffiti artist is a bad-speller, or perhaps it has another meaning other than the font? A Google search shows that there’s a band named “Hellvetica,” but they’re based in Switzerland, not in Troy, NY. My search also reveals an “art director, illustrator, visual junkie geek nerd” who sometimes uses that name, but he’s appears to be located in Boston … maybe it’s his tag?
