  • Billboard creates tempest in a teapot for J.C. Penney

    Is this a case of some California drivers calling the kettle, well, Hitler?

    A billboard in California has caused a stir on social media because some drivers on the 405 freeway near Culver City complained it looked more like the World War II Nazi leader Adolf Hitler than the $40 Michael Graves-designed tea pot that it is.

    Gawker.com reported that the teapot scandal first was brought to light on the social website Reddit. So far, a request by the DBJ for comment from Plano-based J.C. Penney Co. Inc. (NYSE: JCP) has not been answered.

    But J.C. Penney did take to Twitter with this response: "Totally unintentional. If we'd designed the kettle to look like something, we would've gone w/a snowman :)"

  • 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.

    Oxford Circus is one of the busiest stations on the London Underground, its floors trodden upon by thousands of people a week, but it received a bit of a facelift last week as part of the media campaign for Baz Luhrmann’s much marketed version of The Great Gatsby. Check out the article and additional images here.
