Dad Offers To Sell Advertising Space On His Forehead

Advertisements are everywhere these day: on videos, clothes, cars, bikes - but how about your forehead?

One dad is willing to turn himself a walking billboard by selling advertising space, on his forehead, to companies for around £200 ($260).

Tony O'Rourke, a labourer from Birmingham, has already placed ads for his unique services on Gumtree, Ebay and Craigslist.

The 25-year-old said: "It started as a joke between me and my cousin but then I thought, 'I could sell myself.'

"I will use my forehead as advertising space and walk around with it to get companies a lot of public attention."

He's also up for answering questions about the company and their products if he is stopped in the street by anyone interested in knowing more about the ads.

He said: "I'll put their logo or slogan up for 30 days as a temporary tattoo and become a walking billboard.

"I will sit down with the client and discuss the design and get as much detail I can about the product.

"That way anyone that stops me in the street, I will answer questions about the company.

"I put it on Gumtree, Craigslist and Ebay. I've had no responses so far but I'm hopeful.

"I'm not sure exactly how much I will charge but it will be £200 at least.

"My partner thought it was a joke. But she and my daughter will stand by me if I do it.

"I've got limits though. I have a five-year-old daughter, so I can't go walking around with a sex shop on my head."

Tony came up with the quirky idea after questioning his career options - after years of working in pubs and as a labourer.

He added: "I've never really earned decent money doing that, so I was thinking of a new crazy idea that was little bit outside the box.

"I don't like doing normal things, so this was right up my alley. If it proves a hit I might even consider other body parts as well."

Tony's Gumtree listing says he's willing to do 30-day temporary tattoos on his forehead and even permanent ones elsewhere on him.

It states: "I am offering a unique advertising opportunity for your business.

"I am prepared to have your company logo or slogan tattooed on my forehead - 30 days temporary - or elsewhere on my body as a permanent fixture.

"Negotiable prices and all ideas considered. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to boost awareness and custom for your business."

There are some unique money-making strategies - but a company's logo tattooed on you? Could you do it?
