Cougar-Dating Billboard, Like Cougars, Isn’t for Everyone

Blunt ad goes up on Sunset Boulevard

This not-so-subtle billboard, newly erected on Sunset Boulevard, advertises a dating website for cougars (and those seeking cougars). But its pixelated copy line doesn't discriminate—it will be considered tasteless by people of all ages. But it's targeted! Cindy Rocker, "head of cougar relations" at the advertiser, tells LA Weekly that the 90069 ZIP code has more cougars per capita than any other ZIP code. To nearby residents, though, it's the billboard itself that will get old fast. Via Copyranter.
