Quick Change Billboard...

For the past year or so, Citi has been running ads on the billboard above the old Walgreens (site of soon to be MoMo) at State and Randolph. Here is an example (center left) taken during "Fashion Week" of the ad that was present up until last night.

This morning when I got up, I couldn't help but notice this brightly colored billboard had replaced the Citi ad, so I had to take a picture of it before I left for work. This billboard is for "Salem Preferred", also known as "Salem Pianissimo", a brand of cigarettes RJ Reynolds promoted in Japan in the 1990s as a cleaner, "healthier" cigarette. Not sure where it came from, or who is behind it, but I would guess the proposal to ban smoking in the city is related somehow.

When I got home from work this evening, the weird cigarette ad was gone, and now there is an ad sponsored by US Cellular celebrating the Sox recent victory. I can only imagine what will be there tomorrow...
