I’ve seen billboard and outdoor ads for Shark Week before, but none like this. I’m sure a lot of marketing fans have been the infamous shark bus ad, but I’ve never seen one on a bike. Kudos to the Discovery Channel for pushing the envelope once again.
I’m not sure if this bike was actually used to transport people – or if it just looks pretty in front of the building. Either way, it’s probably a challenge to ride and steer that beast!
Has anyone else seen impressive bicycle advertising?
Apparently, the way to a man’s heart is through Beck’s Beer. It’s also a good way to trap someone, according to this clever outdoor ad.
Ladies, I wouldn’t advise doing this. I think it’s better to have your friends set you up, but if you’re very desperate for a man, you might want to try it out. See what happens and let me know by commenting!

What is PETA thinking? By making fun of overweight women, they’ll somehow increase the number of vegetarians? Apparently, that’s the sentiment behind this offensive billboard.
There’s been mixed reviews about this controversial ad. Some overweight women have no problem with it. Others feel it’s “fat-shaming” and once again shows the PETA has “no empathy for humans whatsoever.” Others claim that becoming vegetarian doesn’t necessarily equate to weight loss – which is a form of false advertising.
PETA has always been controversial in attempts to get people’s attention, rather then telling them the facts. If they think scare tactics and making fun of overweight Americans is going to get them fans, they have another thing coming.
The best part about this Chevy Aveo billboard made out of pennies? It peels! You can become a dollar-aire in no time. The ad was stripped of its pennies within 30 minutes.
I bet the people on the ground have no idea what’s going on with this ad for dog flea spray. However, the people at the top have a great view of this ingenious indoor (I know the title of the blog is billboard-outdoor, but this was too good to pass up) advertisement. The only drawback is that you must be a couple flights up to get the full effect. If I was standing on the second floor looking down, I’d have no idea what was going on. Plus, I’m not sure what building this is – is it an office building or a tourist location? I’d rather put this in a tourist location, but if you’re targeting a specific group of people, then a corporation is a better fit.
Guerilla marketing at it’s finest…or in other words…sabotage. China needs to clean up its act in regards to human rights to avoid further humiliation like this. The fact that people are taking pictures only further highlights the growing problem in China and Tibet.
The Dalai Lama once spoke at my college, and he is a very wise and powerful man. I don’t know if he looks at billboards like I do, but I hope he’s working hard to end the tyranny!
Crazy French people! I can’t read the copy, but I understand basic human biology. Anyone who took biology in high school should know what this means!
Anyway, I did some research, and somehow this ad promotes EuroStar, a high speed train service. Possibly they’re inferring that their trains are faster than conception? I’m not sure, but that’s about all I’ve got. Sure, I could type the words into a translator, but I like not knowing what it says. It makes the picture all the more fascinating.
I’m sorry this isn’t the best picture, but check out this ad on the side of a pyramid! Actually, it’s the Luxor hotel and casino in Las Vegas, Nevada – the “asbolut” best resort in Vegas.
Does this make you want to become more eco-friendly?
This is toned-down for a Levi’s ad. The denim company has been treating their jeans like weird pro-revolution protestors lately. Have you seen the commercials with images of racism, foreign countries, and war? What could that possibly have to do with jeans or clothes in general! It makes me not want to buy them, quite honestly.
But I like this billboard for Levi’s 501 denim jean. It’s simple, yet sophisticated and to the point. No trying to figure out whether you’re watching a cult movie or a commercial.
