WGN – A Toronto-based web site is raising eyebrows and revenues, with a racy new billboard at Clark and Ontario.
The site is ArrangementFinders.com.
With the words ”The best job is a blow job” and an image of retired porn star Bree Olson, it promises to help people find not-so-traditional relationships.
Web site officials say they chose Chicago for the clever play on words because of the city’s high unemployment rate.
Just a few feet from the billboard, parents take their children to the Rainforest Café and the Rock ‘n Roll McDonald’s.
While some folks have complained about the billboard’s bawdiness, the website doubled its Chicago subscriber base on the very first day the billboard went up.
I don’t get what the issue is here. Everyone always complains about false advertising and you know what this billboard is doing? Telling the truth. Can anyone say that isn’t true? I don’t think so.
Not only is this the most truthful ad out there, it also has to be one of the most effective. I didn’t know people even still paid for billboard ads let alone work. Welp, doubling your Chicago subscriber base sure is successful.
For all those people who don’t believe “sex sells” well take notes cause this thing is genius.
Serious question: is blow job a bad word? Can it not be said on tv and shit? If it’s not you might as well not be able to say sex. Mind boggling stuff.
