Billboards for Submarines, part 2
I posted two months ago about underwater billboards that Ivar Haglund supposedly placed at the bottom of Puget Sound back in the 1950s in order to advertise his restaurant to submarines. Some suspected a hoax, and it turns out they were right. From the Seattle Times:
I wanted to believe, but something was fishy with the way the presented the pictures and video...Posted by Wally on Fri Nov 13, 2009 at 12:11 PM
Agreed, I thought it seemed suspicious, but they looked like they were very well aged for fakes. If something like this had been true, it would have just been a wonderful find. Too bad it was just another marketing ploy. No wonder people are so skeptical/cynical about everything they see or hear on the news.Posted by Kristen55 in Seattle, WA on Fri Nov 13, 2009 at 04:51 PM
I admire this publicity stunt. It's too bad, though, that Ivar didn't really put ads for submarines under the water back in the 50's. That's a funny idea and would have gotten a lot of attention from then to now.Posted by Cranky Media Guy on Fri Nov 13, 2009 at 08:31 PM
