  • Introducing Beardvertising: Tiny Billboards That Clip on to Your Beard

    / Comments (0)

    I'm not sure which is more disturbing—the hirsute images that adorn the Beardvertising site from Kentucky ad agency Cornett-IMS, or creative Whit Hiler's use of the work "mancessory" to describe such facial hair. You might recall Hiler from past wacky ventures such as conquering Reddit with fake fliers (including a meetup to recreate scenes from Human Centipede—"Guys only") and crafting a tourism campaign that was presumably too "kick-ass" for the Bluegrass State. Here's his latest pitch: "Do you wanna get paid for having an epic beard? Of course you do. Join the world's first Beardvertising network. Get paid. It's simple—turn your beard into a business. Just like Duck Dynasty. Hang a BeardBoard (Patent Pending) in your beard. Sit back and get paid up to $5 per day." So far, A&W Restaurants and Eagle One Automotive have slapped their messages on Beardvertising mini-billboard clips. Maybe Schick, Gillette, Old Spice and DollarShaveClub.com should join in to cut through the clutter and carve out some unique ad space.

    This year, Crosstown Arts is bringing its fourth annual MemFeast dinner to the V&E Greenline on Saturday, May 18th, from 7 to 10 p.m. The concept for MemFeast is simple: Artists present ideas for public art projects, the dinner's attendees listen as they dine, and at the end of the meal, each attendee votes for his or her favorite. The winner gets $5,000 to make the art project a reality...
