Secretariat movie billboard...

Disney Secretariat movie billboard
Daily Billboard really loves the simplicity of this Disney movie billboard.

Instantly you can tell it's a film about horse racing, regardless of whether or not you know the full history of Secretariat, the American Thoroughbred racehorse who became the first U.S. Triple Crown champion in twenty-five years in 1973.

It's a colourful and impactful billboard that really stands out along Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood and was snapped on September 29, 2010.

Hoarders Prized Possession TV billboard...

Hoarders Prized Possession season 3 billboardThis billboard for the third season of the real-life documentary television series, Hoarders, made Daily Billboard laugh out loud when we saw it.

Daily Billboard is absolutely sure a squashed can would be a prized possession for a hoarder and so it's a wonderfully simple, yet effective visual and strapline to quickly convey the idea behind the A&E TV show.

This fantastic advertisement was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on September 9, 2010.

Levi's Curve ID prima donna billboard...

Levi's Curve ID Prima donna billboardLevi's continues it fun and carefree campaign for its new Curve ID jeans range for women, with this witty billboard - 'For prima donnas and girls named Donna'.

It's a very youthful creative, just bursting with life and not afraid to make fun of itself either, which makes it stand out from the other slightly more serious jeans advertisements lining the skyline of L.A.

This colourful fashion billboard was snapped along 3rd Street at La Jolla Avenue on September 17, 2010.

The Social Network 500 million friends billboard...

500 Million Friends movie billboard
You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.

Truer words have never been spoken and that's why this billboard creative for The Social Network is so clever and eye-catching.

This billboard for the Facebook inspired movie was photographed near Sunset & Vine in Hollywood on September 15, 2010.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season six TV billboard...

Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia TV billboard
This billboard for the sixth season of TV comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the funniest visuals to be seen dotting the skies of L.A. at the moment.

It's a really simple creative, but totally conveys the comedic qualities of the television show about the self-centered groups of friends who run Paddy's Pub in South Philadelphia.

This bright, sun-kissed billboard was photographed along La Cienega Boulevard on September 12, 2010.

She follows in the footsteps of actress Eva Mendes to model for Calvin Klein lingerie and certainly looks out of this world in this stylish mono creative.

Red movie billboard...

Red movie billboardNow here's a billboard which lives up to its name, as it is very Red.

So here's another movie adapted from a comic book and the title refers to the stamp on Bruce Willis' character, 'Frank Moses' file, meaning 'retired, extremely dangerous'.

Unfamiliar with the comic book series, for me the most unexpected and eye-catching concept on this billboard is the thought of Helen Mirren as some gun-toting, former black-ops agent. Combined with Bruce Willis' action hero credentials, Morgan Freeman's on screen gravitas and the unique brand on madness that is John Malkovich, it should make for an interesting film.

This billboard was photographed at the corner of La Brea Avenue and Sunset Boulevard on September 16, 2010.

Dexter season five TV billboard...

Dexter season 5 TV billboardDexter returns for the Autumn television season with this fantastically ominous billboard and the foreboding words 'Guilt can be a killer'.

There's something quite jarring about seeing a pool of blood, a baby bottle and Michael C. Hall's haunted look. It's certainly an eye-catching visual.

This Showtime TV billboard was photographed along Sunset Boulevard on September 10, 2010.

Be sure to check out billboards for Dexter season four and Dexter season three here at Daily Billboard.

Glee Gleek Out season two TV billboard...

Glee Gleek Out season 2 TV billboardTime to get 'slushied' with the new billboard for the second season of Glee.

There are not too many billboards for the popular show around L.A. I doubt they have to advertise much as the show is so successful, but it's great to see this colourful creative showcasing some of the cast of the show - Terri, Puck, Quinn, Kurt, Mercedes and even arch-rivals Sue Sylvester and Will Schuester joining in on the fun.

And if you're a fan of the tracksuit-wearing cheerleader coach, be sure to check out the photos of when Jane Lynch met her Sue Sylvester waxwork at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.

This gleeful billboard was snapped along La Cienega Boulevard in L.A. on September 14, 2010.

Maker's Mark missed glass billboard...

Maker's Mark missed glass billboard
Here's another fantastic billboard for Maker's Mark and it looks like someone is not too happy to see all that bourbon whisky missing their glass.

The giant pouring bottle really stands out along Sunset Boulevard at N Gardner St in L.A. and the distressed text symbols :-@ really adds some humour to the billboard ad.

If you love this creative, you'll also like the Maker's Mark Extras Wanted billboard that appeared in this location earlier this year.

This fun billboard was snapped on September 19, 2010.

BONUS WEEK: Funky Aldo shoes billboards...

Funky aldo shoes piano billboard
In the past I've described Aldo Shoes previous ad campaigns as drab and dreary, but they really have turned a corner and their new billboards are fun-filled and full of youthful energy.

Male model Mat Gordon looks like he's really rocking that piano and Jessica Stam joins him below, buried under a pile of multi-coloured inflatable guitars and toys.

These bright and playful billboards were snapped along Sunset Boulevard on September 10, 2010.

And if you like these creatives, be sure to check out one of Aldo Shoes Spring 2010 billboards.

Levi's Jeans Curve ID billboard
Don't you just love the new ad campaign for Levi's latest women's custom fit jeans range, Curve ID.

The colourful billboards have a great sense of fun, wit and they are just full of life. The 'All asses were not created equal' creative just made me laugh out loud when I saw it. It's very clever.

Both billboards were photographed along Sunset Boulevard, the first at N Cahuenga Avenue on August 27 and second creative snapped at the top of Sweetzer Avenue in West Hollywood on September 9, 2010.

Giant No Ordinary Family billboard
Welcome to another BONUS WEEK here at Daily Billboard, where you get double the fun every day.
No Ordinary Family billboard
To kick us off in style is this spectacular billboard for No Ordinary Family, with a retro comic-book style logo and iconic group pose to evoke the superheroic theme of the new show about a typical family given special abilities.
Giant No Ordinary Family billboard
Michael Chiklis should be no stranger to being the super-dad of this foursome, after starring as 'The Thing' in the big screen adapatation of Marvel Comics Fantastic Four.

At the moment it seems as if movie studios have fallen in love with the superhero genre, so it was only a matter of time for a glut of comic book inspired TV series to start popping up (look for NBC's The Cape to debut in the future).
No Ordinary Family abc billboard
This massive billboard was photographed along Sunset Plaza on September 9 and the smaller 'From ordinary to extraordinary' creative along Westwood Boulevard in L.A. on August 30, with another landscape version snapped along the Freeway on September 5, 2010.

Raising Hope season 1 TV billboardYou can't help but love the sheer cuteness factor of this billboard for new television comedy, Raising Hope, that caught our eye the other day.

Resident Evil Afterlife Hollywood Sign ruins billboard...

Resident Evil Afterlife movie billboardConsidering how many people work at the film studios, there really seems to be an obsession in Hollywood to destroy the iconic Hollywood Sign, be it in an end of the world catastrophe, a devastating storm or in post-apocalyptic settings.

Seeing Milla Jovovich striding through a decimated Hollywood Sign still makes for a cool visual for Resident Evil: Afterlife though.

This movie billboard was photographed at The Grove shopping center in L.A. on August 23, 2010.

Newcastle Brown Ale Hell is Waiting billboard...

Newcastle Brown Ale dry heat billboardHell is waiting. But it's a dry heat.

What a fantastically witty billboard this is for Newcastle Brown Ale (or 'Newkie Brown' as we like to say back in the UK), and what better way to make a brown pint of beer appear more interesting than with some sarcastic humour.
Hell is waiting Newcastle Brown special extension billboard
This fun beer advertisement was snapped along Sunset Boulevard on August 13, 2010 and Daily Billboard loves how the head of foam protrudes above the rest of the billboard to grab your attention even more.
