This series of advertisements are to first appear at University of Tennessee's home opener, and it's been generating a lot of excitement.

It is exciting to see more creative outdoor advertising than just your usual billboard poster. What's even more exciting is that this isn't a big company; Five Star Portables isn't owned by WPP or Omnicom. Its just some local business that saw a fun and creative opportunity. Stall Talk, the company working with Five Star Portables, was started by a 27-year-old.
Think of all the places this technique can work: concerts, sports games, rallies, parades, conferences, block parties, you name it. How receptive will people be to this kind of advertising? It will be interesting to find out.
