Outdoor ads for the DIY enthusiast

In a world running out of places to put an ad, Advantage Signs has found one of the few remaining unsullied spots: on the top of your motor.

The company has designed a triangular hoarding that fits “discreetly” on top of your car.

While the idea may sound familiar, this “new” system comes complete with a 30-watt fluorescent tube and 3m of electric cable – almost certainly enough to electrocute the average DIY enthusiast.

And the whole thing is available for the princely sum of &£229 plus VAT. Of course, the downside is that your average taxi driver or driving instructor has the potential to turn himself into a media mogul, offering space on top of his Nissan Bluebird to the highest bidder.

And you thought Richard Desmond was bad.
