Billboardom is a great site for checking out the latest outdoor marketing efforts, highlighting the world's most creative, interesting, bizarre, outrageous or even offensive billboards. Contributions are international and frequent, so those interested in marketing, or simply intrigued by the peculiarities of advertising, could have a great time browsing through the galleries.

Featured here is an ad in Vancouver where a man appears to be lifting a light post, marketing the BC Highland Games. The second is an ad for Barf Laundry Detergent in Russia... what a horrifying name... is this for the morning after an overzealous drinking binge? The third billboard is a campaign to get people to stop lying to their children about the existence of Santa Claus. It says, "Santa gives more to rich kids than poor kids." The last is a defamatory mockery of Britney Spears for which she "is threatening legal action against a Florida radio station that used a bald-headed photo of the pop star on billboards that appear to call her sanity into question."
