The Crying Billboard More Creative Ads

Billboards will continue to serve as the premiere form of outdoor advertising for most, if not all brands.

Let your billboard ad be an expression of your brand’s utmost aspirations. Your work deserves the type of visibility that brings in revenue. Here’s some inspiration before going into commissioning your next billboard advertisement.

Tears Turned Profit

This bring us to the ad in question. The Calgary International Film Festival gained quite a bit of notoriety for their outdoor ad strategy with the crying billboard. It features an animated gentleman in the cinema, his eyes filled with tears as he watches some unseen film.

The kicker was, they actually had a means of pumping water out of where his tear ducts were painted. This gave the impression that the design was actually crying. It was a remarkable feat, and is still regarded as a major moment in billboard advertising. It was created by designer WAX.
