Back in 2004, before consumer capitalism began to crumble under the sheer weight of the greed and corruption of the financial elites (and aided and abetted by us, the consumers), antiadvertisingagency.com sponsored a small project to help fight back.
They created and distributed 600 billboard posters asking people, “What if you could put a message on any billboard? What would you say to the millions of people who see them every day? Here's your chance to say it.”
The following are a few creative anti-advertising billboards that were returned and that the project editors chose to highlight online.

Well, here's your chance. Share your ideas with thousands and leave your billboard message(s) in a comment below.
