MINI Vending Machine Billboard (0)

Andy Awards are in, and most of the winners in the outdoor category have already been featured on the pages of Billboardom, except for this "MINI vending machine" billboard. Goes straight into our collection of other MINI billboards.

Sheep Poetry (0)

Since everybody is so excited (including the NY Times) about all those billboards on sheep, here's something else: "Fifteen of the woolly animals in Northumberland have been daubed with random words and left to roam their field - making poetry in motion."
-- Sky News, Dec.2002

Also, consider alternative media choices: dogvertising and cowvertising.

Leggy Nuns (0)

When I saw this pic on Mighty Optical Illusions, it took me forever to figure out what the illusion was. Now I am torn between spoiling it and letting you figure it out. Guess which one I picked. Or is it just me who's slow here.

Dali Clock Promotes Exhibition (0)

A warped Dali clock promotes a Dali exhibition. Here's another Dali-themed outdoor stunt in Philadelphia.

Heat-Emitting Billboard (0)

This billboard emits heat and melts snow to promote a travel agency and its sunny destinations.
-- ads of the world

Blush Bag (0)

So this bag is all over the internets now and some say it's not terribly original, but I think it would be a nice match to the Fedex t-shirt.

Honda's "No Choke" Billboard (0)

Lethal says, "This is a piece for Honda at 49 Old St, London. Designed to tease and
communicate the proposition provided by Honda's new Civic Hybrid, which is
exempt from the London Congestion Charge because of low emission rates. NO CHOKE is made from moss and wood, and was designed and produced by Lethal and Sally McCaffrey, a landscape artist."

Firefox Bus (0)

For all Firefox fanboys and fangirls, here's an Indian Firefox bus. More pics here.

Rowenta Billboard (0)

As a side note, what do you call this thing the billboard promotes? Curlers? I need to get a life.

Bus Shelter Looks Like Furnished Room (0)

If you liked the McDonald's bus stop, you'll love this one from Prague. Another creative execution advertising mortgages (here's one from Turkey).
-- ad arena

T-Shirt with Boobs and Extra Hands (0)

Noticed this t-shirt on foreign blogs and couldn't resist posting it here. Don't think it has anything to do with billboards.

Giant Truck On Its Head (0)

Amnesty International's Outdoor (0)

A campaign for Amnesty International. There's one for UNICEF that uses the same concept.
-- coloribus

Mortgage Billboard (0)

No, billboards for banks and financial services don't have to be boring, not in Turkey.
-- bigumigu

Steaming Coffee Manhole Cover (0)

Oh, this is the work of genius. Why waste the precious steam coming from the manhole covers when you can make a perfect coffee ad out of it.
-- Coloribus

Boundary-Pushing Billboard-Bending Butts (0)

A recent billboard for Fitness Company, found by Advertising for Peanuts.

An older billboard for Sweetex from the archives.

"Nintendo DS Grave" Outdoor (0)

An outdoor campaign in Italy advertising (I think) the Resident Evil: Deadly Silence game for Nintendo DS. Kind of like this zombie hands promo.

"Painted Shadows" Outdoor (0)

Auckland Regional Council painted palm tree shadows to show people what they were missing.

A (perhaps adhesive) poster with a basketball ring and basket, via Coloribus.

"Sugar Dadies" Billboard (0)

More African billboards can be found at Houtlust.

Bus Billboard for Adsense (0)

Photoshopped or not, this supposedly Google's billboad for its AdWords program raise a bunch of interesting questions about advertising going transmedia. Would be even better if made clickable.

Billboards as Blankets for Homeless (0)

Salvation Army used real blankets for posters so that homeless people can use them whenever needed.

Outdoor Mini-Museums for Ikea (0)

If you liked Ikea's showcase on wheels or it's recent outdoor campaign that wrapped street furtniture in funky fabrics, you will love these outdoor showrooms placed in Japan.
-- advertising for peanuts

Billboards Mounted on Sheep (0)

I know you've seen this image already, but for the sake of record-keeping I had to repost it here. Nice, but not original. Golden Palace has already branded cows.

Modded Taxi Advertising A Toyshop (0)

A wind-up taxi advertises The Biggest Toyshop in the World.
-- advertising for peanuts

Double-Sided Billboards Fight Drugs (0)

An interesting use of billboards' "doublesidedness" in this Saatchi campaign in Singapore.

Bathroom Doors Fight Drunk Driving (0)

Looks like remodelling bathroom doors is the second hottest trend in out-of-home advertising right after hacking urinals (followed closely by crushing balls). This is a good one, though. The Pedestrian Council of Australia made public bathrooms look like jail cells to convey the consequences of drinking and driving (don't-drink-and-drive billboards are a whole separate subject altogether).

Windows-Decorated Computer Store (0)

A small Windows-decorated store that sells computer hardware in Ukraine.

Boobs Painted on MINI To Advertise Something (2)

It says: "FHM. It's a guy's thing." Don't know what FHM is. Comes from the depth of my hard drive.

[Update April 7, 2006] As many of the Billboardom's reader have kindly pointed out, FHM is a men's magazine. Dunno, I prefer Playboy in Braille.

More Crushing Balls (0)

Loved the giant advertising things that crush cars? AdRants brings you more, here (the tennis balls) and here (the red ones). And the muffins, the killer muffins!

Giant Maxim Billboard in Nevada Desert (0)

AdRants writes about a giant - 75 X 110 foot - replica of the Maxim magazines's cover placed in the Las Vegas desert to celebrate Maxim's 100th issue. Let's get a huge model if we can't have our huge iPod.

Billboard Graffiti (0)

A social outcry against donut terrorists takes form of a billboard-liberating graffiti.

Illegal Billboards by Ron English

"Building Mod" Billboard (1)

Mighty Optical Illusions brings us this billboard (more pictures inside) in Toronto that doesn't really advertise anything, but uses the same "building mod" approach as this Turkish billboard for Volkswagen and the NY billboard for Court TV.

Big Butt Outdoor (0)

Two creative ways to use the big-butt incentive in an outdoor ad:

Slap the image on chairs at a restaurant (via ads of the world).

Make the image elastic and stretchy and put it on the gym exercise machines (via crative brain).
