No, this is not a desperate plea from Daily Billboard to get the Titanic and The Wolf of Wall Street star to visit this blog (if only we were that clever), but this genius idea belongs to a Russian environmentalist who wants the eco-friendly Hollywood activist to support his recycling efforts in his native country.
Using a Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign he's raised the funds required to pay for a $15,000 billboard in L.A. to draw Leonardo DiCaprio's attention (and ours) to his waste-sorting efforts in his home town of Ostashkov, in an effort to inspire his townspeople by getting the endorsement of a famous celebrity. What a great, innovative idea.
Unfortunately this ad location doesn't get direct sunlight at this time of year (obviously this is what $15,000 buys you), but it still caught Daily Billboard's magpie eye.
Only time will tell whether Leonardo DiCaprio will actually 'like' the campaign at the website LikeFromLeo (be sure to check out the video there for the full story), but we hope so (although the cynic in us, hopes this isn't just some elaborate hoax).

All these incarnations were based on the 1924 newspaper cartoon strip, Little Orphan Annie, by Harold Gray, so it'll be interesting to see what the kids of today think of this contemporary retelling.
Daily Billboard likes the fun touch of a joyful Annie leaping over and providing the dot over the 'i' of the film title.
This remake of Annie isn't the only big screen musical hitting cinemas this holiday season, as Disney's Into the Woods will open a week later on Christmas Day, so it looks like it will be a sing off for box office supremacy.

Tom Ford's new Black Orchid fragrance billboard, although you'd think there'd be some non-competitive brand clause in the model's contract, or maybe that doesn't apply so much in fashion.
Meanwhile the super-sized 'cheek to cheek' wallscape creative was photographed on October 2, although the full effect was slightly ruined by the sheer amount of major construction currently taking place along the Sunset Strip.
Lately another giant-sized billboard has appeared along Sunset Boulevard, near the border of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, this one with the ladies sitting atop a giant bottle of the perfume was spied on November 23, 2014.

TNT's new weekly TV series is based on their made-for-TV movie franchise The Librarian starring Noah Wyle, which has already spawned three movies, The Librarian: Quest for the Spear debuted in 2004, followed by 2006's Return to King Solomon's Mines and 2008's Curse of the Judas Chalice.
Indiana Jones, Warehouse 13, and more genre shows than you could shake a book at, and the ad creative has a slightly dated Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel to it (which may be what TNT were hoping for).
The corner wall billboards for The Librarians were spied near Times Square in New York City on November 3, plus along West Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard on November 12, 2014.
UPDATED: The Librarians are back for a sophomore season with this cool ad creative with Rebecca Romijn leading the charge.
UPDATED: Here's also extra outdoor support for the second season in the skies of New York City.
