About

Hello. My name is Oobah Butler. Maybe you've seen my projects on VICE? Like when I elevated my damp shed to TripAdvisor's #1 fake restaurant or faked my way to the top of Paris Fashion Week as a denim designer named Georgio Peviani. Well, I've reserved a billboard in Midtown, NYC on 7th and W48th for two weeks of April, and I've done it for you. You can put your face on this billboard, but you have to pay. And the more you pay, the bigger your face will be. In the end, it will be a collage of faces staring blankly as the millions of NYC foot traffic go past. Reclaiming a commercial space for the individual .
 

It's easy. Once you've donated, please send a hi-res picture of your face to the email: OobahsBillboard@Gmail.com - along with a receipt from your donation. Then I'll take it from there.

I'm not completely full of shit, by the way. I bought one myself recently for my book which is due out in April, and have been into them since. 

Risks and challenges

Challenge will be to reach enough people who are interested - but I think we can get it done!
