Two types of paid advertising truly work, at least for my mind. Online and outdoor (frankly, because you're such a captive audience as you drive).
So, while I'm loving many of the current online campaigns, including Toyota and Apple's innovative multi-spot ads, I'm also intrigued with teaser outdoor campaigns. And, there's another one in Milwaukee.
Today, on my drive in from a Brookfield meeting, I noticed a big green M on a Lamar billboard near Miller Park. Lamar Outdoor staff members won't spill the beans, so I'll leave it up to you.
What's this campaign all about? Who is advertiser? Use the Talkback feature and tell me.
