Thread: Ron Paul Digital Billboards up and running in Des Moines through Jan. 3rd!

  1. #1

    Ron Paul Digital Billboards up and running in Des Moines through Jan. 3rd!

    After weeks of planning and $3000 in donations working through AdamT and friends with RevPAC, three digital billboards in Des Moines will be displaying a series of different Ron Paul ads running from now through and including January 3rd.


    They are a thing of beauty! The ads display approximately every (Edit: 47) seconds for 8 seconds each. Also running is one that says Cut $1 Trillion in Year One. More texts will be displayed in the coming days.


    It all started here : http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...es-Moines-Iowa


    The billboards are located across from Merle Hay Mall, one of the busiest in the state, and along I-80 and I-235 as you enter Des Moines. I'll be taking some better daytime pics of all three locations tomorrow.

    Press release goes out tomorrow, hope we get some additional coverage from that!

    Thanks to all the donors and everyone that helped make them possible. Let's win Iowa!

    As you can see below, these billboards are easily visible from perhaps 1/4 mile away. The design pops off the landscape.

    I tried to get pics for along the interstate for those on I-80 and I-235, but a State Trooper kindly moved me on my way before I could get a shot. So I got creative with my zoom lens, talked to the Clear Channel billboard guys who happened to be on the access road, and the let me down to get a pic of one of them. The other one worked out well from the overpass, showing the traffic along the interstate.

    Again, there are three of these billboards running simultaneously.

    Please ignore the color issues, that is just a result of the digital display interacting with the camera. They are all running perfectly!!

    Suhweeet!
    “If you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” -CS Lewis

    The use of force to impose morality is itself immoral, and generosity with others' money is still theft.

    If our society were a forum, congress would be the illiterate troll that somehow got a hold of the only ban hammer.

    The ads display approximately every 64 seconds for 8 seconds each.
    could you clarify this? 64 many different messages ?

    good work looks great!

    sorry for the confusion. There are number of different ads for different companies that cycle through. The Ron Paul ads show up approximately every 64 seconds, and the ad freezes for 8 seconds before the next one displays (Burger King, etc.) Then 64 seconds later, the Ron Paul ad displays again with one of five different text messages.

    But we can change the messages as much as we want, it is as simple as an email to the contacts at Clear Channel.

    Have an idea for text? Keep it under 9 words and display here for AdamT to see.

    Today I was thinking "End the status quo. Begin the Revolution!"

    My idea for the text line:

    "The only candidate that trusts you."

    Something along the lines of "End foreign welfare, save Social Security for senior citizens." We need to start appealing to the older voters.

    Yes, hourly if we wanted to! No additional. We can tailor to current events as they unfold. Pretty cool feature. Can also tweet to the bilboard if we want to use that option.

    Only choice is Paul. Like him or hate him any other vote is a vote for debt and war.

    ^
    This would need to be reworded, but it gets the point across that voting for any other candidate is a vote for debt and war.

    First I wanted to say how much this billboard KILLS! Great idea and great execution. Do you love Ron Paul's grass roots, or what? Second, I wanted to say to TheViper: I simply LOVE this idea. In fact, this is something that is going to be my new email tagline on every Ron Paul item I send out! "The only candidate that trusts you" GOTTA LOVE IT! So true, too!
