Viacom Outdoor Plays Joke On McDonald's


Either a serious case of spiteful humor overcame the Viacom posting crew or human stupidity, as it so often does, reared its uneducated head with this odd placement of a McDonald's billboard directly beneath a childhood obesity billboard. All we say is thank God for the proliferation of digital cameras so we can revel in the oddities and wonders of advertising.

No Photoshop necessary--I took the photo in Oakland, CA, and sadly, it's real. You can view the original on Flickr.

A few days after I took the photo, they replaced the obesity ad with an asthma ad that features an adorable kitten.
