Wall-sized billboard in United Concourse B, O'Hare airport, this evening:
The ad didn't look as if it had been newly placed, as a épater-type challenge to conventional sensibilities. It was a little faded at the sides. But could it really have been left there unnoticed (by Accenture) all this time?
OTOH, the whole white-hotness of this scandal already seems like something from another time. We have
Harry Reid Conan to think about!
More on Google-and-China, Copenhagen-and-China, America-and-decline, Nexus-and-iPhone, Duluth-and-beer, airlines-and-security, and other topics once I unpack (and sleep).
UPDATE: I have heard from readers who have seen this ad, and similar Accenture/Tiger ads, recently in other airports including LaGuardia, Atlanta, Houston, and Hong Kong. None of the ads seem to be newly installed; they're leftovers, with new meanings. From a reader who went through Chicago:
"The billboard of Tiger Woods at the water hazard has been dislpayed at O'Hare for at least a month. I was through Concourse B on 11th December, which was the very day he admitted his various wrongdoings and issued the first of his public apologia along with his suspension of his professional golf career. It was pretty funny to walk past countless TV monitors displaying his remarks (and interminable talking heads dissecting them) and then see that billboard. I'm surprised it's still up."
