Kawa!

Ouch! this for me is the argument for separate bank accounts.



in the vicinity of a pub called the (i forget the name) Arms, near the Romford Road & Upton Lane crossroads in East London, London. let it be known for the record that that is a Ugandan neighbourhood.

Degstar that is in New York. That was an viral marketing campaign for a COURT TV show,

If I have spoilt a good story, I might as well go all the way.here is the accompanying blog

It even has a fake video of alleged burst up of husband and Emily's best friend leaving a motel.
They had executed their idea very well until they decided to put up similar billboards in Los Angeles and Chicago a few days later. that's when people realised that possibly it was a marketing ploy, because poor Emily wouldn't have thought about putting a billboard supposedly to embarass her soon to be ex in L.A and Chicago where possibly no one knows him.

@Sav,
while i disclaim any and all complicity in perpetuating whatsoever falsehoods as may be ascribed to my inadvertent spread of what on the surface was patently truthful information, i shall refrain from avarice unto your person as sought by your nefarious insinuation of such aforementioned complicity on my part in the dastardly deed under consideration!

Eh Deg! That was hilarious a response to Savage! Sounds like an excerpt from Robert Louis Stevenson' "Dr Jykll & Mr. Hyde" or like Bernard Shaw in one of his ancient, critic reviews. Welcome back meanwhile!!

@JKB-I don't think I got pawned because past knowing that is not a Ugandan neighborhood, I know for sure that it is New York. I have a hunch you missed the whole thing including the billboard.(Click the picture to enlarge).

That billboard spawned lots of media attention. Including this New York Post article

Savage, I still don't get what the billboard is campaigning. If it's for a court TV show, how is that message advertising the show?

Savage, cut Deg some slack 4 pulling this off. Deg's devoted readership isn't clueless about Uganda, ariko, most were born & live/lived there. We know such structures & the sign posts (like Essex street s.post) in that pic do not exist in Uganda and the comic Deg knows that, thus the humour

JKB, u misunderstood. Deg meant that the billboard was in a Ugandan neighborhood in London! You know how different cultures can set up their own neighborhoods in foreign countries. That's how East London is-Full of Ugandans...

@anonymous- The blog entries accompnying the billboard correspond to some of the shows plotlines.

Basically the show is called Parco P.I. and is about a private investigator. And from the blog, Emily suspects her husband is cheating and she hires a private investigator.

Here is a synopsis for an episode entitled "getting even."

Vinny's latest client is a woman whose husband is not only cheating on her, he's stealing money from their jointly-owned real estate company. He has to figure out what her husband's true assets are. After a little investigation, Vinny discovers that the husband actually has two real estate companies. It's kind of like his girlfriend – his wife isn't supposed to know. Parco's plan? Set up a sting operation with the whole Parco family posing as the staff at a hair salon looking for a new space to rent.
