#8 I Hate Pigeons

June 15, 2010

Someone Will…make billboards talk, have an opinion, shout it loud, start a debate…

Why can’t a billboard have a personality? This one went up in Melbourne telling it like it is. Should advertising have more personality? Can messages from brands talk to audiences like humans? Is it possible to start a proper conversation from a billboard?

    I agree with jacko. This is a complete waste of money and space. Who has every wondered what a billboard thinks and what is the use of it! It does not advertise anything. Completely ruined my day.

    I work in the building where the billboard is on top of and it certainly did start some proper conversation. We had previously noticed the weird advertising on the building ‘take me with you’ and then seeing ‘I hate pigeons’ capped it off to a ‘wtf is happening with these billboards’ – then we guessed what it could be advertising, one suggestion was that it was advertising a product to stop birds from pooing on legdes and then we looked on the internet and found this. However there was no debate of if any one actually hated pigeons and no one picked up on that the billboard hated pigeons because it was being shit on, but it certainly made us want to actually research what the heck it was advertising and then we found this website. It certainly did make us laugh, distracted us, engaged us, confused us and certainly distracted us from work!!

    I am from perth and have recently visited melbourne on holiday with my family. When we saw this billboard, my 8 year old daughter laughed and said “it is funny because pigeons poo on billboards all day”. I asked my brother (a Melbornian and a multimedia advertising exec) what the deal was and he didn’t know. I have been home for a week and still the billboard was on my mind, so I turned to trusty know-all Google and came across this site. Advertising at its best. Evoking thought and conversation. I loved it! The yawn one got me BTW!! Cheers from WA 😉
