    This is a promotional video from Aerotain, a Swiss firm creating drone-powered helium blimps to serve as flying billboards. That is kind of depressing. Not surprising, just depressing. In related news, bb gun sales are through the roof. I never had a bb gun growing up but I... / Continue →

    This is a video of street artist KATSU using a drone with a can of spraypaint attached to deface a giant Calvin Klein billboard in New York featuring Kendall Jenner. Unfortunately, he doesn't do much but paint a couple feeble red lines across her face. Come on bro, I was at l... / Continue →

    This is the entirely family friendly P0rnhub billboard that the company had up in Time Square for almost a full 24 hours before the DoubleTree Hotel (the building behind the billboard) had it taken down. Presumably because they want you to spend $16 apiece renting p0rnos in yo... / Continue →

    This is the poorly placed billboard advertising the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. I mean, it's true, it's just sad. Hopefully none of the old folks venture outside and see it. You stay in the cafeteria and slurp Jell-O, I'll take care of this. *climbs to top of buildi... / Continue →

    This is the JC Penney billboard for a teapot (because teapots are a great choice for billboard advertisements) that, when blurred, kinda sorta looks like a characture Hitler. Of course, if you squint your eyes and shake your head hard enough, you can get anything to look like ... / Continue →

    This is a meaty billboard in North Carolina that wafts the smell of cooking steak to passing drivers. But I'm allergic! The Bloom grocery store chain, part of Food Lion, erected the giant sign at 1220 River Highway, between a Shell gas station and a storage facility, to promo... / Continue →

    Deutsche Bank put up a billboard in Madison Square Garden that allegedly displays almost real-time data on the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. And I, for one, can't read that number. Kevin Parker, global head of Deutsche Bank's Asset Management division, said of... / Continue →

    This is a current billboard advertisement being run by Pacific Gas and Electric. The board generates 3.4Kw of electricity per day under optimal conditions (allegedly the amount used daily by a family of four), and sends it back to the grid. However at night it draws from the ... / Continue →

    This video is of an Adidas billboard in Tokyo where two players are suspended by ropes and kick a tethered soccer ball around. They keep calling it a "real soccer match", but I think that's debatable, seeing how it's nothing like a real soccer match. It's from 2006, so you ma... / Continue →

    Artist Cayetano Ferrer created a "transparent" billboard by photographing the trees hidden by a 30-foot billboard in Daejeon, Korea and then pasting the image onto the billboard. He purposely removed a section of the billboard and put the missing piece of the image on another... / Continue →

    This ad created for The Economist is designed with a motion sensor which lights up the bulb whenever somebody walks directly underneath it. Which could be disastrous. What if somebody walks underneath exactly as they're having a terrible idea? "Should I quit my job and become a... / Continue →
