Ashton Kutcher's stupid twitter feed feud encroaches on the real world

Posted By on Fri, Apr 17, 2009 at 3:23 PM


Maybe you've already been minding your business, driving down the interstate, seen this, spit out your coffee in shock and horror and ruined your shirt. If not, be warned, in a move that surely signals the end of the world (or at least just the end of the world this week), Lamar Advertising, the third largest billboard company in the U.S., yesterday rolled out "Follow Ashton Kutcher" across its national network of 1,133 digital billboards (several of which are in and around LR), according to Ad Age.

This is a pro bono deal, which expires sometime this afternoon, in conjunction with Kutcher's bid to beat CNN to become the first Twitterer to reach a million followers. He won earlier today. You know, because pictures of Demi's ass are way more worthy of your attention than the news of the world.

Apparently, Lamar's involvment has to do with malaria relief in Africa. It's all fairly confusing.

Vulture covers the historic victory.
