Everyone knows you get buzz when you go big. Attention comes easy if
you put a giant Homer next to a famous fertility landmark, distract
pilots with a massive stripper or give space aliens a peek at Eva
Longoria’s cleavage. But we at AdFreak like to focus on what’s next.
And we believe the new hotness will be commercial exploitation of rice
paddies. Mental Floss recently told us about the small Japanese town of
Inakadate, where farmers create exquisite works of art by planting rice
strains with different-colored leaves. It’s apparently spread across
many Japanese communities. So who should be the first to tarnish this
beautiful tradition with good old commercial greed? Maybe this is a job
for Uncle Ben, corporate juggernaut.
