8 Of The Craziest Billboards Ever

Actress Raquel Bailey really wants a part in Tyler Perry’s next flick. She spent her “last money” ($1,500) for this billboard, which is conveniently located right near Perry’s Atlanta studio.

This is a picture of workers repairing a digital billboard in Times Square, but I have to admit at first glance I thought it was an ad for a new kind of mascara that replaced the traditional brush with a team of tiny men who carefully colored and defined each lash. Hopefully Maybelline research and…

Spurned Mistress May Have Taken Her Bitterness To Times Square Billboards

That saying “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”? It just got real, y’all: Gawker has multiple sources saying that a lovey-dovey billboard in Times Square featuring a huge photo of a couple named Charles Phillips and YaVaughnie Wilkins is actually the work of a scorned mistress (that would be YaVaughnie Wilkins) who want…

Divorce: Reading The Sign(s)

So many men, so little time. Well, at least that’s a divorce lawyer’s motto. Corri Fetman, who handles Chicago’s romantic splits, has put up a billboard even more controversial than a pre-nup. Sandwiched between two half-naked models, the tag line reads, “Life is short. Get a divorce.” While some hopeless romantics in town find the…

K-Swiss Should Keep It Real

Sex sells. But what about purity? A K-Swiss ad campaign features tennis star Anna Kournikova in a white sports bra and a teeny-tiny mini skirt, showing off her midriff like a high school ho.

Woody Allen Beats Off American Apparel

American Apparel is known for perverse ads which feature their scantily dressed female employees. Although, CEO Dov Charney has already been sued by some of his former employees, he believes in equal opportunity, or so he said in a deposition tape, “I frequently drop my pants to show people my new product.” Vomit.
