Nipple billboards erected in unusual places, introducing the ballboard

An unusual advertising spot for a local piercing shop in Rotterdam - the board behind the basket and the basket itself! Yes, it's the new ballboard.
These new baskets we're placed smack dab between a high-school and a mosque in the last week of 2004, the hoop has been replaced by a larger than life nipple close-up and piercing ring instead... Naturally locals began complaining immediately, attracting the local and national press attention as they covered it and soon the basket had to be removed. More bang for the buck as they say, a single clever basket-billboard bought more press attention than the new piercing shop Queen of rings could have imagined.

The perfect advertising medium - homeless peoples coats.

Ben & Jerry's have together with a bunch of nuns thought up an idea that clothes the Dutch homeless in warmer winter gear, while advertising ice-cream.

If that isn't enough of a paradox for you, consider this - we ignore ads, we ignore homeless. A match made in heaven is to advertise on the backs of homeless! ;)

Actually it seems to be the brainchild of the nuns who run a charity in the Amsterdam city centre, they have offered to put stickers on the backs of homeless peoples coats as thanks for Ben & Jerry's donation to their cause.
