Men Can Now Earn Money By Placing Ads In Their Beards Via ‘Beardvertising’

By 05.20.13

Beards are basically free marketing for flannel shirts and neck scarfs, so as long as you have a big ol’ bushy one, why not get paid? That’s the logic behind Beardvertising, a concept, Laughing Squid reports, “thought up by Lexington, Kentucky-based advertising agency Cornett-IMS allowing men with fuzzy beards to earn money by placing miniature billboard-like ads in them.” Business Insider adds:

A Kentucky-based ad agency came up with a high-concept platform that will take native advertising to the next level, putting ads in untapped real estate that consumers interact with every day: beards.

“I think it’s the next big thing,” said agency Cornett-IMS’s Whit Hiler. “Everybody loves beards.” (Via)

Except Jim’s wife. She’s sick of being one and wants her “husband” to stop living a lie.

Half joke, half genius, the scheme pays men with facial hair $5 a day to walk around with a mini ad in their beards. And A&W has actually signed up as a business partner.

The next logical step: Merkinting. If Kellogg’s ever SeinfeldVisions old Sasha Grey clips, sales of Frosted Flakes would skyrocket.
