Company launches 'Beardvertising' like utter tools
Beards eh? Quirky people grow long beards and carry on like they live in the 1890s (as expertly dissected by Portlandia) and people coo and trill at them as they knit their own butter made out of tattoos. Or whatever.
And now, some thundering berks have launched something called 'beardvertising' where people who own an "epic beard" can use it as advertising space. They can earn money from it too.
Advertising agency Cornett-IMS is offering men "up to $5 per day" to wear clip-on adverts on their faces, with their website adding: "Do people stare at its awesomeness? Of course they do. Do you wanna get paid for having an epic beard? Join the world's first Beardvertising network."
"It's simple - turn your beard into a business. Hang a BeardBoard (Patent Pending) in your beard. Sit back and get paid up to $5 per day."
Company exec Whit Hiler reckons: " I think it's the next big thing. Everybody loves beards. We're getting a ton of emails from guys with epic beards that want to host beardboards and we're actually in talks with some brands that want to be Beardvertisers."
"I think we'll probably be seeing some 'beardboards' in the wild before too long."
Next week: Beard trimmer sales soar as people go gonzo on people advertising Veet in their beards.
