Saudi Arabia: What Would YOUR Billboard Say

Billboards, those big signs which advertise a product or deliver a message, are seen across the world.  Even some of the most remote places have billboards.  I remember hiking in Pakistan and coming across a billboard for Pepsi!  It seems since the area was known to be popular with hikers Pepsi wanted to take advantage of a market opportunity.

Billboards are also seen across Saudi Arabia and can be in either Arabic or English.  Like other places, these billboards deliver advertisement for products and also serve as public service announcements.

If you had an opportunity for your own billboard in Saudi Arabia, what would it say and where would it be located?

    “BOTTOM PINCHERS WILL BE PERSECUTED” – Crowded souk

    “LEAVE YOUR CELL PHONES AT THE ENTRANCE WITH YOUR SHOES (Don’t worry, CCTV is on)” – Outside mosques

  2. In the spirit of the Quran and in memory of our beloved Prophet, we take ‘there is no compulsion in religion’ seriously:
    WORSHIP AT THE PLACE OF YOUR CHOICE
    throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
    —————————————————————————-

    – near the variety of temples, churches, synagogues, mosques and other religious houses of worship welcomed throughout the country

    What a fantastic witness to the religion of peace!

  5. On second thought, last year we had billboards around the US saying the world would end on May 21,2011. My billboard would probably say something along the lines of “The World is not Ending. Get on with your life.”

  6. I’d like to hear more!!!!

  7. “Bizza & Bebzi available here”
