Bad Billboard: The Expendables 3

I haven’t written a good, honest rant on the site in awhile.  I hope you don’t think that it’s because nothing has annoyed me.  I’ve just really been too busy to get my thoughts together and type them out, but something was bugging me and I just had to post it here!

Now, I think we can all agree that billboards can still be an effective form of advertising.  When you’re driving in your car, you’re pretty much a captive audience.  Just heading into work, I probably pass by 10 to 20 billboards on a daily basis.  One billboard that’s recently showed up around here is this ad for the film The Expendables 3

Now, I haven’t seen The Expendables or The Expendables 2, and I’m probably not really even the target audience, but to me this is just a horrible advertisement!

Although, to be fair, there are two things this billboard has going for it… It lets you know that the film is coming out, AND that it has a buttload of actors in it (all men, and apparently one women… can you spot her?)  But excuse me if I don’t have my binoculars with me in the car, so I can actually see the names of anybody in the film!

Based on my limited knowledge of first two films, I know that people like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are probably in this photo somewhere, but by the way everybody is crammed in there so tight (and badly Photoshopped) you’d never be able to see who else is in the group shot.

But actually, if I have to be honest, there IS only one face on this billboard that ever stands out for me…

… and the only reason that I’d probably ever ACTUALLY go see this film…

… would be if Kelsey Grammer was appearing AS Dr. Frasier Crane.  How amazing would that be?!?! I guess I can dream, can’t I?!?
