So far this month you've seen the fashion, film and TV billboards filling the skies of L.A. this July, and now it's the turn of the rest of the outdoor ads making the city skyline far more interesting than the mostly uninspiring architecture. Here's a selection of cool drinks, technology and other consumer lifestyle billboards brightening the city skyline this past month.
Meanwhile there's nothing like a grumpy cat meme to catch your eye (and I'm not especially a cat lover either, so thanks to a friend for notifying me of this billboard). This one is questioning where all of U.S. Humane Society's money is going to if only 1% goes to local animal shelters. WTF, indeed.
If a cute animal doesn't turn heads, then you can always resort to a notorious twerking celebrity like Miley Cyrus to champion your cause. To protest the increase in the minimum wage in California, the Employment Policies Institute (no doubt funded by conservative Washington D.C. lobbyists) are using the young pop singer in the fear-mongering billboard that claims teenage jobs will be lost. But at the end of the day if the minimum wage is raised doesn't that mean that teens, and other low income workers, will be paid more? Sounds like it's time for the rich fat cats to give the other 99% a fair wage.
