yesterday morning i almost ran the yuppie mobile into the car in front of me on my morning commute because i couldn't stop staring/laughing at a new billboard that was recently put up on the corner of st clair and w 9th.
this january cleveland has the honor of hosting the 2009 US figure skating championship. it's a big deal right? i mean, i have always loved me some figure skating - elvis stojko for the win!
of course there is bound to be promotion and advertising throughout the city leading up to the event - but seriously, who came up with this campaign? i need to thank them for my endless laughter each time i walk out of my apartment building.
this billboard is all sorts of wrong while simultaneously being oh so right. the style, the attitude, the sequins, and don't forget - that face.
according to this billboard sequins and the burning fire in this skaters eye, are exactly what it means to be a figure skater competing in the national championship.
1. i need to find out who that male figure skater is.
2. if this billboard was live action, i wonder what johnny sequins would be saying? or grunting for that matter. ew.
