My car got spray painted!

My mom was cleaning out a closet in our house and she dropped a can of spray paint, popped a hole in it and it got all over the walls.. so she decided to run out to the garage.. where my car was... so now on the front (to the right of the License Plate) has a big dark gray spray paint line on it.. i was wondering if anyone as any solutions???? or if im just screwed.. good news is its the stock bumper and i was looking to get a new one anyways but not for a while so looking for a quick solution!! Thanks!!

if it's not much you can get those color matching clay bars.

also, you can try buffing it out (since the spray paint was on the clear coat, you just have to buff some of the clear coat off)

Someone did this to my supra once, just get some overspray remover and it will wipe right off.

Compound will work...
Cause someone I do do custom graphics with spray can on the car... any thing that is over sprayed.. he used the compound to remove it...
But becareful not to rub it too hard.. or else clear coast will start to come off...
