6 Organizations Taking Their Feuds To Billboards
Billboards are normally a one-sided interaction, where a company or organization forces bored, distracted passersby to listen to bragging about products. But here are a few examples where two brands openly feuded for your wallet with their giant ads.
BMW vs. Audi
You can play chess at the park, online, by snail mail correspondence, and apparently across billboards, too.
Newcastle Brown Ale vs. Stella Artois
Beers that live in chalice houses shouldn't throw stones.
Kingfisher Airlines vs. Jet Airways
Jet Airways must be regretting making themselves so vulnerable to attack. Even still, how dare Kingfisher prey upon a rare moment of humility from an airline company?
Audi vs. Mercedes
Audi once more plays the aggressor, criticizing Mercedes for having a compact SUV with a boxy design. Although to be honest, a cardboard box on the road would grab my attention more than anything currently on the market.
American Atheists vs. Catholic League
I would argue that once you're putting the phrase "You Know it's Real" on a billboard, your religion is grasping at straws to get followers. But it seems like only a seasonal commitment, so why not?
Manchester City F.C. vs Manchester United F.C.
When footballing star Carlos Tevez transferred from perennial powerhouse Manchester United to crosstown rivals Manchester City in 2009, City fans welcomed him with a billboard in their sky blue colors. So United took the opportunity to dismiss their little brother with a devil red billboard, literally looking down on them.
