But it still exists. Now, however, it’s called The Billboard Truck.
About four years ago, the Admobile took Knoxville by storm. Everybody was talking about it. This was long before diesel prices skyrocketed to unsightly heights.Â This was before the scare tactic formerly known as Global Warming decided it wanted to be called Climate Change.Â The people that were talking about it were cussing it for the most part.
The earth was in a warming phase.
Back when it was called AdMobile, it actually moved. It could be seen cruising up and down Kingston Pike every day.Â In fact, my sources tell me that if a driver parked it for more than a couple of minutes the frugal owner, who was constantly refreshing the GPS position, would call them on a AdMobile cell phone and tell them to put it in gear.
As you can see by the video, the AdMobile is now parked in the Target parking lot in Maryville, and the name has been changed to protect the guilty. The ads no longer rotate, and only the ads on the side are sold, but mobile outdoor advertising lives in East Tennessee, making us all proud.
