Are you for sell?
In the article, Rent this space: Bodies double as billboards, there is a supply and demand issue happing in the advertising industry. Advertising takes originality and what is more original and creative than paying people to use their bodies to sell a product. This type of advertising grabs people’s attention in both areas of supply and demand. Businesses like the supply aspect of it because potentially millions of people will see the business logo on a persons head and other body parts and it will not even cost as much as putting up a billboard. On the demand side many people thinks its great to get paid for something as simple as putting a logo on there body. They believe if people are going to look at them they might as well get paid for it. The negotiations for “price and parts” are happening on eBay. Are you up for sell?
