The squarer version evoking the Stars and Stripes flag appeared later and was snapped along Beverly Boulevard on October 18, whilst the smaller billboard was captured along Sunset Boulevard on October 27, 2011. Daily Billboard thinks it's an interesting touch that the stripes are reworked to be horizontal or vertical depending on the format.
