What’s the use of having a giant ad on the surface of the Earth that’s visible from space? There’s barely anyone up in space to see it. If you’re going to create a gigantic Colonel Sanders, for example, wouldn’t it be better to project him onto the surface of the moon, and thus direct his friendly, updated visage toward six billion hungry, fried-chicken-craving Earthlings? That’s what FranWorst envisions with this comical imaginary ad placement. Says the satirical press release: “KFC creates first advertisement in space; beams 60 million sq. foot contemporized Colonel Sanders logo onto moon’s Copernicus crater.” Click over to FranWorst to read more; it’s impressively detailed and pretty funny.
