Default Ad flyers? Need permission...

I am lucky to have two close friends who also like Bonnies and Pontiacs in general...we wander around in town a lot just to enjoy eachother'* company. While we're there we make a game of looking for Bonnies and....slap me. I need help.

Anyway, we thought it'd be kinda neat to stick BC.com ad flyers under the wipers of every Bonnie we find. People here in Grand Forks like that sort of thing and wouldn't get mad. The flyers would say something like "you have great taste in cars!" and feature a link to BC. I think it'd be a good, free way to advertise the site to people who'd be likely to use it and enjoy it.

I can't imagine a reason the admins wouldn't like this, but I thought it would be wise to ask permission before I gave my friends an arsenal of flyers and put 'em around.

I'v been toying with doing that here in Nova Scotia.... but one thing you should do, is keep track of what cars you have placed flyers on, so you don't hit the same cars over & over again. I would suggest using their license plate #.

Pfff....I'll hit 'em multiple times if I have to. It'* the American way.

I've tagged about six Bonnies so far today, plus the ads I stuck in the grocery store and the crappy mall. This is fun!

I'll convert the ad PSD I made into a J-Peg so others can download it and tag the Bonnies in their area. It'* a pretty nice flyer, if I do say so myself.
