The Directional billboard #McDriveKing - print, France

Near Brioude, a town of 6,700 inhabitants in the Haute-Loire region, two temporary billboards were built. One of them displaying 258km directions, nearly a 5-hour drive to get toe Burger King. The other showed make a left to McDonald's. Here's a short film of the day they put the sign up. It wasn't up for long, but long enough to make an ad and amuse the villagers.

I found this so interesting. I have been exploring the importance of infographics and what elements that make a good infographic. This Advertisement shows me what I have learned which is the importance of a visual comparison. I'd be interested to find out how effective this advertising stunt was. I think it was very creative and certainly eye-catching.
