When I saw this billboard I thought 'Only in Hollywood' at the news that Prince Frederic von Anhalt, Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, intends to run for L.A. Mayor in 2013.
I'm not sure what the adopted German royal knows about everyday problems living in his mansion in Bel-Air, or how he intends to get people back to work, lower taxes and reduce water and electricity bills, but at least he's good at self promotion which every Mayor seems to be.

Funnily enough Prince Frederic tried to run for office to replace Arnold Schwarzenegger as Governor of California, here he is in West Hollywood's Annual Gay Pride Parade in 2010, but his ailing wife's health prevented him from doing so.

Let's see if he has the staying power to run for Mayor of Los Angeles.
With horse-drawn carriages and advertising billboards along Sunset Boulevard I'm sure he could stimulate the economy a bit with his own wealth if he really wanted to.
Only time will tell...
