“Official Sponsor of The Gyroball”

“Official Sponsor of The Gyroball”

I love this billboard on the Mass Pike. It's for Bank of America who are the "official" bank of the Red Sox.

It's designed to resemble the manual scoreboard on the Green Monster, and says "Official Sponsor of" before being completed by topical slogans, which change about once a week.

Today, it reads "Official Sponsor of The Gyroball". Prior to Opening Day, it was "Official Sponsor of Best Day of the Year", and before yesterday's Home Opener it read "Tuesday Homecomings".

Makes me smile every time I see it, even if Bank of America are evil incompetent buffoons who I wouldn't bank with if you paid me.

Japan Runs on Dunkin' on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

This cracked me up when I saw it at Fenway last night. The Dunkin Donuts billboard above the bleachers is in Japanese (reportedly, it says “Welcome to Fenway Park”). Dice-K mania hits Dunks!

Possibly the funniest thing in Edinburgh, from someone who hasn't even bothered to head up north.

TIME Magazine Person of the Year 2005 | Billboard in Times Square NYC

Upload a photo of you (or someone or something else) and Time might flash it up on their “Person of the Year” billboard in Times Square. I uploaded a shot of Bacon, naturally.
