The Topsy Turvy Bus

I saw this thing in town this weekend parked at the local Sam's Club. Unfortunately it is being used for political advertising here is the website:

Re: The Topsy Turvy Bus

I was just reading the article and it says that for the cost to build this bus they could have aired a 30 second TV commercial, 5 times. I wish more company's would come up with cleaver ideas like this, even if it is in the name of advertising. Usually I'm not a fan of advertisements but if they're going to advertise anyway, might as well make it fun and unique.

I think I need to start a political movement - if they can raise enough money to do that - imagine ....

You could easily win SC with Colbert, they love redneck things.

Re: The Topsy Turvy Bus

Check out this other "topsy turvy" bus. Similarly weird, but for better reasons.. It's used for training drivers about roll-overs.
