YouTube Red original movie and TV billboards...

Unicorn Island YouTube Red movie billboard
YouTube is known the world over for its funny cat videos, viral sneezing pandas, music videos and short-form content and personalities, but after the likes of Amazon, Netflix, Hulu and even Sony PlayStation producing their own original, critically-acclaimed content, you knew it wouldn't be long before the Google-owned video channel was producing its own movies and TV shows, for a fee of course.

YouTube has spent the last two years building up the profile of its online celebrities and shows with outdoor advertising, like these billboards for Video Game High School, these Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart YouTube billboards and these Tyler Oakley and Lilly Singh YouTube billboards.

Now the video streaming platform has launched YouTube Red, a new paid-for monthly subscription service allowing members-only to view original series and films from top YouTubers mostly ad free.

Some of the first offerings include A Trip to Unicorn Island, a documentary film following vlogger sensation Lilly Singh aka 'IISuperwomanII' on her world tour, a horror series starring the most popular YouTuber, 'PewDiePie', recreating classic video game situations in Scare PewDiePie, and Lazer Team from Rooster Teeth, a sci-fi comedy about four losers who discover some alien technology and have to protect the planet, which already received a limited theatrical release.
These YouTube Red original movie and series billboards, including the giant-sized A trip to Unicorn Island, were photographed in multiple locations along Sunset Boulevard on February 15, 2016, whilst the theatrical release billboard for Lazer Team was snapped above the Sunset Strip on January 13, 2016
