Adzookie Will Paint Your House and Pay Your Mortgage
And I have to admit, for a minute, I was sorely tempted by the offer. But the company, according to reports, says it has already gotten thousands of interested homeowners, and it had only planned to paint 10 houses with ads (the company's CEO, Romeo Mendoza, is now looking for other advertisers to sign on so it could help as many as 100 homeowners). The company will start painting houses in the next few weeks.
I doubt the company would go for a billboard on a house in my neighborhood, anyway; these cobalt blue and bright orange ads wouldn't stand out a bit in the midst of some of the extra-bold paint jobs around me. And I have to wonder if this would violate city codes against signs over a certain size. In Portland, Oregon, where I live, signs are limited to one square foot of painted area in residential-zoned properties. It will be interesting to see if Adzookie finds it's getting its brazen customers in hot water with the local law -- not to mention those famously restrictive neighborhood boards.
