Investment firm's knitted quilt billboard.
(click images) Feeling cold and vulnerable after being ass-raped by the i-bank industry implosion? Allan Gray, South Africa's largest investment firm, recently erected this security blankie billboard made of over 900 fabric squares near Cape Town airport. The board continues the firm's "patience" marketing strategy previously exhibited by this puzzle billboard and the below TV spot—where a boy courts/champions a plain girl (who actually is quite pretty) because, we discover, she has a smoking-hot mother. Not especially confidence-building, but much better than the usual bad metaphor investment ads, like these (via).
