There are a lot of potential albeit unorthodox real estate out there that can be used for marketing and the A&W Beardvertising ad campaign promotes one of them. With beards becoming more and more popular, one ad agency has proposed that they be used to host mini billboards that people won't be able to miss. Like a piece of food stuck in the wiry strands of hair, the A&W Beardvertising billboards will have people staring in no time.

Conceived by Cornett-IMS, an ad agency based in Kentucky, the A&W Beardvertising ad campaign is part joke, part genius. Those with epic beards are invited to leave their contact information if they are interested in getting paid five dollars a day to walk around with a mini ad clipped to their facial hair.
