Forehead Guy Takes Over Times Square


Former forehead guy and trend-a-holic Andrew Fischer who sold his forehead as ad space for $37,375 and spawned endless copy-cat efforts is now latching on to the recent million dollar home page trendlet but is taking it further. Fischer plans to award a million dollars over the course of one year and to raise the money, he is selling :30 ad space on a Times Square Manhattan billboard for as little as $10 per spot. There will be 2,880 available :30's per day. Fischer plans to award $2,000 per day to the person who find the hidden sponsor of the day. It's not clear how that will work but a $100,000 grand prize will be awarded as well at the end of the year. The promotion is set to launch January 2006. Expect to see Golden Palace very soon.

UPDATE: We are informed this promotion has been put on hold indefinitely.

It may be nit-picky, but the billboard in question is not in Times Square, but way over on 8th and 42nd at the bus depot. Still a busy spot though I belive there is major construction still going on across the street.

I've built this:
It is incredible how I get hits doing nothing, actually. 500 unique in 4 days.
However not much selling activity yet.
I have a contest for $1m, anybody selling as original site is invited.
