Weird Billboard Alert: This Samsung Ad Gets A Tragic Makeover
My apologies, this is a bit hard to read, but it was the best I could do as I drove up Virgil. Spotted at the corner of Virgil and Santa Monica Blvd., this billboard for the Samsung Galaxy took on a tragic tone after some artist added their own extra touches.
Specifically, someone glued an actual text message conversation to the phone in the ad. So now, the billboard features a strangely sad text message that reads, "your father passed away last night." The response is "OMG, what?" Clearly, a strange conversation to conduct over text, but perhaps that was the point of the artist who posted it.
