I could do that.....!!


While sitting in a cafe on Rockeby Road in Subiaco, this guy passed by several times, I'm not sure but I think he saw my camera on the table and figured if he went past enough times I would eventually be driven to take his picture and as evidenced above..he was right, heck at one point he even waved as he whizzed by, I missed that!! When I got home I Googled 'scooter billboard advertising' and  discovered that there are a few companies in Perth that do it, Media V were the group who handled this one.  It got me thinking, not a bad way to earn a dollar in summer, check out his typically casual Aussie clobber, thongs (just to be clear, flip flops !!) and all. Here he is below coming in for another drive by, I wonder if they'd take on a 'woman of a certain age with dubious driving skills' haha! Happy Friday, I'm really serious now, where did this week go.....!

  3. In french, Thongs are .. tongs! :o)or claquettes, but not so much used. I see a french shop behind! (l'Occitane en Provence) How great. About the guy: When you wrote "I could do this", I thought about the resolution written on the sign! :o))

  10. A very fun post, Grace. I'm glad you finally grabbed your camera and got off a couple of shots. I think I could probably handle that job, too. We've had trucks with some kind of electronic thingy on the back which changed advertisements every few minutes. Haven't seen them in a long time, though. Perhaps they were too much of a distraction and caused a few accidents.

  17. I'm sorry to say that the bubbles I drink don't come in clear bottles like those! As soon as I saw Rokeby Rd I knew it was in Subiaco...I used to walk there almost every day when I lived in Subi'. And I agree...where did the week go to?

  18. perhaps he was flirting? interesting way to advertize...one I've not seen here!

  19. Wrong kind of bubbly for starters. However, if my wife and I order water in a restaurant we prefer it avec gaz.

    We get this sort of thing at public events on the backs of small flatbed trucks (or lorries, if you prefer). They usually advertise bars and nightclubs.

  20. Some municipalities here have banned mobile billboard advertising on their roads. I agree, there is quite enough traffic.

  21. That looks like a stress free job. Well unless a big truck was behind you.

  22. Oh my gosh, I have never seen a moped with a trailer!

  23. That's good...that kind of bubbly is good for you, but not as much fun as the other...
