A magazine cover as an ad. Paris, 2008. Bruce Springsteen of the E Street Band smiles out at passersby from behind his guitar and aviators. He poses with that well-known cocky look in jeans and a black shirt, complete with some male bling. We take it that Rolling Stone Magazine--the French version--is what is being [...]

Superman Est De Retour

Superman est de retour! Superman Returns! reads this newspaper headline of the famous Daily Planet. The man of steel will be visiting Paris--saving the day no doubt--in this latest installment of the Superman movies. Directly under this headline is a larger than life picture of Superman, aka Kent Clark, flying near the Eiffel Tower to [...]

Harry Potter

Vienen Tiempos Oscuros y Difíciles: Dark and Difficult Times Are Coming, reads the relatively small tagline written across the sky in somewhat medieval font. In 2005, the popular Harry Potter series released yet another movie, "El Cáliz de fuego," in its blockbuster series. We know it in English as "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." We [...]

A "come hither" young woman peers out from what appears to be a movable billboard (Do we not see a wheel in the lower left corner?). It seems an odd placement, to have a large billboard-type ad at essentially eye level. However, it allows pedestrians to get a good look at these charming pendants. Our [...]

Once again we find ourselves underground in the oft artistry laden métro de Paris. Whether it be the classy Louvre station with its collection of sculptures and other art, the buskers offering weary commuters and tourists a bit of music or just the numerous engaging billboards on display, the métro system can be a source of [...]

Keep Portland Weird

This has got to be Portland, Oregon, United States of America. Whaaat?! This was found in a Paris métro last April, 2012. Clearly it is Portland cuz... ...we can see a moose in profile front and center amongst various musicians and such, the cityscape in the crimson center layer and the Cascades with Mt. Hood [...]

Le Café Onctueux de Rians

Le Café Onctueux de Rians thumbnail

Envie d'un Café? Crave a coffee? Oui, mais Oncteux! Yes, but Oncteux! This billboard is advertising a coffee flavored pudding/flan with the luscious name, Unctuous. The advertising campaign is aggressive, no doubt, because there is a lot of money to made. The challenge of increasing revenue while decreasing costs can be accomplished with Intuit QuickBooks, [...]

Lancel Handbag

Such a wondrous building to have a huge billboard covering a large portion of it, but we digress. Hang tight as we will revisit this historic train station, with its somewhat colorless past and now colorful present. The advertising budget for a billboard this huge demands careful accounting and there is no better way to [...]

Clever and funny! The French love (are obsessed?!) with their pooches. When we first traveled to France too long [...]
