Think Amsterdam has a lot of bicycles?
Then come to Moscow!
For the past couple of years, businesses in Moscow have been using bicycles for advertising.
I don’t mean that they ride around the streets on their treadlies shouting out their product list or special offers.
Because they don’t.
They park a decorated bicycle often with their logo, address and other information , on the footpath for all the passers-by to see. Usually, but not always, they put the bike in front of their business or shop.
In the beginning, it seemed to be a unique way of advertising. Quirky, even.
But then, it quickly got old. There are bicycles everywhere in Moscow and they’re advertising everything under the sun!
Here are some of them I’ve seen in various locations in Moscow.
And finally, a little one we found in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, advertising a taxi service. So cute!
Maybe this advertising trend has spread to your part of the world, also. Is this a popular form of advertising where you live? Do you like it? Want to see more of it?
Let me know in the comments below, or send me your photos of bicycles used for advertising and I’ll add them to this post.
