Please, Not the Plant Billboard Again

Posted by: Heather Green on June 21, 2005

Somehow, in my mind, most of the people who visit this blog are in Silicon Valley office parks, surrounded by the area’s scrubby green scenery and the web of roads that shuttle people up and down the Valley.

Which is why, when I saw that Ford had created a living billboard in Toronto using real plants, my mind immediately flashed to’s similar billboard along Route 101 back in 2000, which slowly shriveled to death over time as the company’s fortune’s declined. Via Adrants.

Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
