PHOTO HUNTERS: UNIQUE OR FUNNY SIGNS

This week’s theme is on UNIQUE / FUNNY SIGNS.
SIGNS are mean to direct or pass certain messages across to the people.
Sometimes, people might have different perception on the messages.
Although I’m from the advertising sector here in Malaysia,
I still think that the advertising agency which handled this
BILLBOARD
here ought to be shot for not doing proper researches and
test run before setting up such a huge BILLBOARD.
Two of the complaints that I had received are that the two figurine up there
looked eerie especially when you are traveling alone after midnight.
Moreover, they looked rather risky and insecure

for those people traveling below the BILLBOARD.

SIGNS01

As for the second complaint, just read and understand
the message in the BILLBOARD.

SIGNS02

Janice will tell you here about the combination of the two figurines and the message as in the BILLBOARD meant to most public.

i agree with you- the advertising company may have been a little too risque in choosing the tactics to advertise their clients' innovations... it's one thing to get people's attention, but it's also another to cause anxiety and worry... but then again, where did i hear it, that bad publicity is still publicity... interesting take on today's topic =] great weekend to you!

OMG! I would have been so scared and drive my car into trees or the railings! What were they thinking!?

jams o donnell said...

Hmm that's not quite the right message. It almost says bnak with us our kiss our butts! Happy weekend

WillThink4Wine said...

Well, obviously they should have hired Janice to be their spokescat!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That's an interesting advertising company! We're looking forward to posting our photohunt this week, as we've missed the last couple!

Angela said...

Those people are funny!!

Mickey said...

I must agree that the SIGNS are disconcerting.Looking up and seeing two boys would be shocking!
Seeing their 'butts' is not very polite. I agree with Jams O Donnell
Hope you are feeling better

Princess said...

These are very unique signs.
I think it would be very distracting to drive by them!

Napaboaniya said...

Actually I've got the desire to pull down their pants wor!!! :P

How's the fever coming along? Feeling better already I hope :)

Sassy Kat said...

We all stopped in to say hey. Momo, Opus, and Roscoe are spending the weekend with me, we are having a pajama party.
I sometimes don't agree with some of the advertising that is shown. I guess they just try to get your attention and don't think about anything else.

jmb said...

Very strange thinking going on those heads Criz Lai. Have a good weekend.

Carver said...

I agree those weren't well thought out billboards. Good take on the theme.

Expat Traveler said...

that is so unique, odd and pretty funny! Talk about something you don't see every day.

Team Tabby said...

Definitely the sign is sending negative messages. Great photo for PH this week.

I had to laugh at the second billboard because I'm not too sure I can BANK that that's a secure board. Scary.

Happy PH!

Blur Mommy said...

I agree with you. Sometimes we pass by some billboard & we wonder what were they thinking when they designed it!

Joyismygoal said...

BUTT it is catchy

Mar said...

Good examples and how NOT to advertise! great signs for the theme.

My pic is posted here. Happpy PH and happy weekend!

Liz said...

And yet someone's put a lot of thought into them.

I'm glad Janice is taking part too!

Huey said...

Ooo... where are these billboards? :D

Lynn said...

The first billboard was kind of strange to put life-like beings up there. The second though, a little hard sell.

My photo hunt's up here if you have time to visit.

mrsnesbitt said...

How did you manage to keep your eyes on the road? LOL!

Hootin' Anni said...

This is too much. But it definitely fits the category for the week.


Mine's posted...stop by and see if you can figure it all out!!

Pato & Pearl said...

Unique but funny.
Happy weekend!

Gattina said...

An advertising company with a strange sense of humour, lol !

Sarge Charlie said...

and they will say, I made you look, very effective advertising

-TNChick- said...

Thank you, greatly, for helping spread the word for Zoey. I pray someone will use the internet and see she's mine and email/call me!

Dragonstar said...

That would be an unsettling thing to see if you weren't expecting it!

Thanks for telling me about the badge you made - I've posted it and given you a link.

gaj38 said...

thats so funny what a unique sign :lol: thanx for visiting mine

Adan*Michico said...

I agree with your point as well, hehehe~!

Daisy said...

That first one does look a little bit eerie! And showing of the backsides seems a little rude, too.

I hope you are feeling better today.

Chikai said...

interesting billboards but scary at the same time. what if you're new in the area and you drive pass thru this sign with two persons hanging on the board? i'm sure the sight will freak you out a bit.

UNIQUE indeed! ;) and thanks for checking out my entry at www.blogsilog.com :)

the teach said...

Criz, actually I think the back of the billboard is funny, no? :D

Yoshi said...

That's a pretty unique billboard. totally different.

mirage2g said...

lol! Wacky!!! Hope you're doing great there! TC!

PowersTwinB said...

wow...advertising, both in public and on TV has really reached some dead ends! lol...Sis (KissedAlotAtoads) and I have been missing a few weeks, our brother is very ill....and Cindy computer has died...but we both missed you!! my hunt is up, please come and visit again!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

We've seen cows on billboards, but not this!

Great find for sign!

MoMo said...

There is going to be a law in Australia forbidding billboards that distract the driver too much! Not sure if the first would make the grade.

Hope you are feeling better.

Sammawow said...

Great take on today's theme with your sign but like another said that the message was a bit disconcerting!
