I dated a girl in high school that could have made a fortune with this idea. Her forehead was huge!

hehe... too bad he's only going for the temporary tattoo.. He could fetch a much higher rate for a permenant one. I bet Microsoft, Pepsi, and a few others would go for something like that (depending on the person of course)..

Imagine how much a logo on someone highly visible (actor/musician/etc) would sell for.

Similar to what boxers do, when they sell the space on their backs.

Yea except the bids are up to 21K - and I was going to bid $75 dollars. He can pay for school and hookers - or something. Smart guy, I admire his courage on that idea.

I guess you could call it that. I would call it

Please understand that I have an unusually low tolerance for adverts. I don't have cable. I wont listen to commercial radio. I also boo and hiss during the pre-show ads at the movies.

However I do understand the neccessity and inevitability of advertising, but this fella.... oh dear god... isn't this the eighth sign of the apocolypse???

That being said I sure could think of a thousand ways to spend that kind of money.

I might have to offer up some space on my face. I could use a bank roll like that.

YO! Will I'll be in your neck of the woods next week, Mineapolus.

I will give you $25 and I could personally write something in permanent marker on your face.

Too bad for those who might follow that this is essentially a one-shot chance for the guy, since it's undoubtedly the media coverage of the novelty which is pushing prices up. Two days to go as of this writing, and if the madison ave biggies take a liking to this story, this guy could be the new William Hung and have his 15 minutes worth of fame turn into hundreds of thousands. It will be fascinating to see how this unspools over the next 48 hours. If access Hollywood or e entertainment get onto this in the next day or so, watch the bid amounts skyrocket.

Fascinating.

I am thinking of selling advertising on my naked body. How much do you think I could get for that?

If the media picks up on your offer and you have the charm, wit and overall screen presence to turn your fifteen minutes into a big cash flow, then maybe a quarter mil and 2 years in prison. If you do it and don't have those attributes, maybe a few hundred bucks and 10 years in prison, because you won't be able to afford Johnny Cochran to defend you.

:-p
