When Erection Billboards Seem Forced
10:01 am, May 17th | by Laura Donovan
A sitcom about three post-graduate guys is bound to incorporate more than a few dick jokes, but it’s hard to argue the show content warrants a large billboard of an erection trio simply because the program follows a couple of 20-something dudes who are thrust into the workforce unprepared.
Yet “Workaholics,” which first hit airwaves in 2010, has a new ad above Sunset Boulevard featuring phallic images pressed against what appears to be spandex. The billboard was clearly put out to boost ratings, and chances are, it will. Some onlookers, such as little kids glancing out the window during consistently awful Los Angeles traffic, may not even pick up on the significance of the ad. We can only hope.
Others may be left with more questions as to why the boner addition was even necessary. It would make more sense for something like “American Reunion,” which was released last month, but this feels a little forced. Come on, now. Not all men-centered projects have to rely on penis jabs 24/7 to get viewers.
