So this billboard is across the street from my work. It's generally bought by McDonald's. It's a blight on the community, as were the gypsy car traders who built it (it's a 'highway' billboard, one that's supposed to uglify the countryside by an Interstate, but there it is right in the middle of Waldo.) I think I remember hearing it could be condemned and taken down if it went unrented for a period of time, though I don't recall the period.
Anyway, it's been blank for a few days now. One friend of mine suggested it was a promotion for the Spinal Tap album "Smell the Glove."
I liked my take on it better: it's a very clever promotion for a Rothko exhibition.
