CHICAGO — The “Windy City” is being blown away (so to speak) over a billboard showing porn star Bree Olson and a reference to oral sex.
The sign, placed by Toronto-based hook-up website ArrangementFinders.com, pictures open-mouthed Olson with a strategically censored tag line, “Because the best job, is a b**wjob,“ and targeted at Chicago because of the city’s high unemployment rate according to the company’s marketing chief. A.J. Perkins.
“We wanted to come up with a billboard that had some sort of play on words ‘jobs,’” Perkins told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The website is reportedly owned by Avid Life Media that also operates cheating website AshleyMadison.com.
And the billboard’s apparently working since its debut on Feb. 5. As of Feb. 12, about 3,200 Chicagoans have signed up for the service.
But not everyone’s happy about the billboard, including Mayor Rahm Emanuel who was reportedly stunned by the pseudo-porn message.
Emanuel lambasted a TV reporter who showed him a mobile phone photo of the billboard at a city council meeting, saying, “You are a living example of why people should not have either smartphones or technology.”
Hizzoner went on to say that he didn’t think the message was appropriate based on the photo he saw, but wouldn’t respond further until he sees it for himself, making a point to also cite the freedom of the First Amendment.
