Gordon McKernan Billboard: Vandalized or Slick Advertising?
Shreveport, the billboard controversy capitol of the world!
This morning, as I was driving into work on I-20, I noticed something rather peculiar. Of course, there are so many Gordon McKernan billboards in Shreveport-Bossier, most of them don't catch my attention anymore, but this one was different.
In fact, this billboard caught my attention far before I got close enough to realize why.
As I got closer, I contemplated pulling over both to snap a better picture and laugh uncontrollably.
It appears that the Gordon McKernan billboard on I-20 westbound near Jewella has been vandalized. Gordan's face on this particular billboard now features large, Harry Caray-esque glasses, with a hilarious monster mustache. Luckily, I was able to snap a few quality photos.
Of course, the moment I saw it, it was clear that someone, somehow got up there and spray painted the new look. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think that there's a chance it's not vandalized at all.
Could this be just a super slick advertising ploy to get goofy radio DJ's (like myself) and others talking about Gordon McKernan??? If that's the case, job well done.
Here it is, what do you think?
