Would you bend over to pick up a penny by your foot? what if that penny was right next to you within arms reach?
Chevrolet launched a new ad in London today depicting a 20-foot billboard of a Chevy Aveo made entirely from pennies. Unfortunately, the advertising only lasted thirty minutes as hundreds of passers took a moment to pick up a penny or two.Yellmalta reports that the penny billboard was unveiled in London's New Oxford Street to advertise the 769,500-pence starting price of the new Chevrolet Aveo.Chevrolet's Les Turton commented:“There have been some great car adverts before, but none that has stopped traffic and actually put money back into the motorist’s pocket so this is certainly a first. We’re glad we’ve topped up lots of people’s wallets, purses and, in some cases, rucksacks, but it would have been nice for the billboard to last a little longer than 30 minutes. At least it showcases the fact that the new Chevrolet Aveo is quite literally great value-for-money.”
