Oh Dear God No

EK alert! A Bret Michaels billboard via Diamond Notes:


And a billboard from Sunshine of LEAVes of Dodger Blue:

Any idea who these guys are?

Earlier at SoSG: This enormous woman will devour us all

I believe they are the four horsemen of the apocolypse, or some variant of that.

Anthony said...

Is that Nickelback???

fanerman said...

No... that's not true... that's impossible! NOOOO!!!!

(I hope that's not Nickelback)

WVFuller said...

that is totally nickleback.

Steve Sax said...

As someone else once said, YOU GOT TO BE F'ING KIDDING ME!?!

Adam said...

Should I read anything into the fact that Canadian band Nickelback is on our billboards and Logan White is scouting a pitcher playing in Canada?

What are the chances that Roy Halladay is Nickelbacks number one fan and this was a requirement for waiving his no trade clause?

Steve Sax said...

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
How did our picture get on this sign
Up over Hollywood and Vine

And Dodger fans don't care who we are
Dressing all in black doesn't get us very far
We didn't realize that this exposure
Would make us look even more like poseurs

Steve Sax said...

Adam: Or, we're getting Eric Gagne back.

Josh S. said...

Yep. It's Nickelback.

DOUBLE U.
TEE.
EFF.

Josh S. said...

Behold my masterful MS Paint skills!

Jen said...

Wait, there's a billboard with Nickelback but not Ozomatli?

This makes no sense.

Mr. Customer said...

Or 1000 other bands who are actually from LA and/or don't suck?

Jen said...

Or that, too.

Josh S. said...

Oops. The link in my last comment isn't working. Try this.

Felix Pardalis said...

well, on the bright side this confirms that most of us can't recognize Nickelback

Mr. Customer said...

JS,

The Crayon scrawl is a nice touch.

'88 Dodgers Cresting A Hill said...

Well at least it's partially obscured by phone lines.

Steve Sax said...

Josh, your photoshop skills are still lightyears ahead of ours at SoSG. When we start hiring in the art department, I'll let you know.

Diamond has another one up of Nikki Sixx - found on Sunset Blvd.

karina said...

It could have been worse, it could have been Creed.

(no offense for Creed fans).

karina said...

Well, if a Nickelback billboard gets Halladay without depleting the farm system or parting ways with the youngsters, i might even buy all their discography.

Orel said...

That's taking one for the team, Karina!

Orlando Zepeda said...

probably next

Orel said...

Love it, Orlando. Permission to post?

Orel said...

@Felix "well, on the bright side this confirms that most of us can't recognize Nickelback"

It's funny because it's true!

Orlando Zepeda said...

please do

Orel said...

Thanks! Look for it tomorrow in our...lineup.

Guess what? I found another "This is My Town" Billboard! It's probably less than a mile from the Nickelback one. I'll try to get a photo tomorrow to send to you. I won't spoil it by telling you who it is
