I'm speechless too - what a campaign.

Down here, we have a billboard from Hooters. It of course has several of the Hooters Girls in their skimpy outfits, and it has a few chickens being chased by a rooster. The bottom of the billboard says:

"Only a rooster gets a better piece of chicken"

The damn soccer-moms are all up in arms about it too.

I'm surprised - but not upset, don't get me wrong - that this billboard will go up in such a public place.

Network television isn't allowed to show a bare bottom before 10pm, but these will be on display to millions of people every hour, every day.

I could care less about the product, I'm just happy America is taking a step towards becoming less prudish.

I have no problem with giant asses on billboards, just think of it as an election year and you'll get over it. wink 

On the other hand I am super excited to see Japanese toilet technology finally crossing the Pacific. I have missed that familiar shot of water up my ass that I grew accustomed to during my time in the land of the rising sun. Now only if we could get CC Lemon over here I'd be set!!

I doubt the billboard in question will ever go up as some politicans will make a big deal of it for their own selfish reasons, protests by religious groups, tennats in the building (including as the picture shows, a McDonald's on the corner).

Update: a state court judge has issued a temporary order preventing the billboard from being installed. A church located in the building that was supposed to host the billboard had sought the order.

Yes, but how are people talking about it?
You can of course launch an image campaign that makes people wonder what it is all about, because no one gets what you try to communicate.
Whether or not that is smart is a completely different question.

Exactly...the essence of advertiseing! How many people have you got talking about this product, just on A.net?!?!

They actually make them in Georgia.
