Branding the Moon to Benefit Mankind?

When I first saw the term, Advertise on the Moon, I thought it was a joke. After exploring, I found Moon Publicity, LLC, really does plan to sell advertising on the moon!

The reason? To stimulate space travel. Read on.

From the website : Moon Publicity | Advertise on the Moon
Forty years ago man walked on the Moon. Where have we walked since? It is time that we find a way. Creating images on the Moon provides a commercial incentive for turbo charging space travel technology. Shadows are only the beginning. These advancements will eventually place robots on other worlds building space stations and planting crops.
Shadow Shaping technology (patent pending) can create images on the Moon that may be viewed from the Earth. Future lander/robots will create ridges in the lunar dust that capture and shape shadows to form YOUR FOREVER AD.

Bid on your spot NOW.

From now until October 20, 2009, you may bid on ad space on the moon. I think it will be more like bidding to become a supply of capital to further this technology. The winning bids will be announced early November 2009.

Put your brand where everyone in the world will see it, 3-4 days a month--forever.

I have to say that this is just disgusting. I thought it was bad when fighters and Olympians started add advertisements to their bodies.. but this is just sick.

We have gotten to the point where we have saturated this world so much with advertising that we have to start moving on to other planets?! SICK!

I can't quite see how this will work. Surely they won't be visible to the naked eye? Actually I hope not, but if they aren't, what would they be worth to an advertiser? Prestige perhaps.

That's so cool to hear this. It just shows how far we've come, and to hear that their are actually earths that possibly exists is amazing. Can't wait to see one when it is found in space.

@lindayanng-Girl, tell me how you really feel. LOL

@A-shadows will form designs that will be viewable from Earth a few times each month/week. Sort of like crop circles or those designs in rice fields in Japan.

@jay-Thanks for stopping by.

Giant ads are what we'll take, writing on the moon.

Lunacy.., literally. :)

Hey didn't they used to sell advertising on mars and the moon years ago already anyway? I wish I would have been the person to think up the idea in the first place that's all I can say!

CyberCelt said...

@ken-It may stimulate space travel again.

@mkcoy-I was not sure if it was a joke, but these people hope to revitalize space travel with the capital they raise.

I hope I never see this. Scrawling graffiti across the moon is a disgusting idea and I'll boycott any product that's advertised.
