On my way home from work yesterday right before my exit I saw a new billboard. (I-95 South, just before Atlantic Blvd. exit, just in case anyone wanted to know)
I plan on taking a pic, but don't have it yet.
It is a black billboard with white lettering - very plain.
It says:

XXL XL L M S MINI
(and at the bottom it says) MINI.COM

I was very surprised to see it. Has anyone else seen a billboard?

billboard in orlando

There is a different MINI billboard located on Hyw 50 and Powers. Located on the north side of the street facing eastbound traffic.

Message is :
Soon small will mean huge the way bad means good
miniusa.com

Odd location for a MINI ad as it is not near the local dealership and this is not the best part of town

There are at least three billboards in the New Haven, CT area. And not a dealer within thirty miles.

NY

There are numerous ones around NY. One on the LIE that reads "THE SUV BACKLASH OFICIALLY STARTS NOW" ... basically the sams slogans that are scattered around www.miniusa.com ..


I like that they have no cars on them and only a person really interested to see what the heck the ad is about will do some searching ..

But ... hell the waiting list is still long :mad:

NYC siting 2

The Xl, L etc. billboard is on the West Side Highway in New York. My son spotted it as we headed in to the NY Auto Show yesterday. Got in 2 hours before it opened for the BMW CCA club event. After drinking some free BMW coffee and chatting with the brand managers, we hightailed it over to Mini.

Made three or four trips over to their display while seeing the show. At one point I was answering a guy's questions ("do you work for Mini" he asked?). The guy manning the literature display whispered to my son and handed him two small brass coins with MINI stamped on them. Think I can get $22,000.00 for them on eBay?

Hope to see more billboards soon. I live within 20 miles of two Mini dealers (sorry you guys with no dealers). Should see quite a few.

The Ultimate Advertising ...

Well I just got home from Ground Zero/Wall Street area of Manhattan and guess what I saw????

Walking down on Broadway, a large black SUV (looked like a GMC Suburban) was carrying on it's roof a Red/White MINI with white wheels !!!!!! Driving all over downtown!

On the side of the SUV was a typical MINI ad "What fun thing are you doing this weekend?"

I wish I had a camera, the way they advertise these MINIs is great ... especially the fact that one was on top of an SUV was a riot ...

Here's an image of it from the US Gran Prix at Indy in Oct 2001 (credit to the original photographer):
