Giant Gatorade Bolt 24 billboard
Regardless of whether or not you'll be having a big family gathering for Thanksgiving this year due to COVID-19, the holiday season can often be exhausting, so here's some extra energy to keep your strength up in the coming days courtesy of these Gatorade Bolt 24 and Bodyarmour fruit punch drink billboards.

And just like you may find yourself battling with your siblings, parents or in-laws this holiday season over politics or who makes the best mashed potatoes, these super drink brands are facing off in the city skyline in a big way along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip.

Both sports drinks brands are illustrating great examples of comparative advertising, Gatorade's new Bolt 24 antioxidant offering aimed at athletes on and off the field shouts about having 30% less sugar than Bodyarmor Superdrink

Whilst Bodyarmor's super-sized message claims to have 100% less Red Dye 40 than Gatorade's other Fruit Punch product.

One health message may be about less sugar and the other about no artificial colourings, but in both outdoor campaigns the bottle shot is the hero of the billboards.

If you need some extra oomph this holiday season when you're slaving away in the kitchen making a family feast to feed the hungry hordes, at least you have some choices to get you through day (although Daily Billboard finds a glass, or two, of champagne also helps).

With the world facing a global pandemic at the moment, this reboot of The Stand is more timely than ever, but let's just hope humanity's future doesn't look the same as this story though.

Small Axe: A Collection of Five Films billboards...

Small Axe collection five films billboard
This November 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner Steve McQueen creates and directs five original and timely movies for Amazon Prime Video's new anthology film series, Small Axe.

The stories are set from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s and tell personal tales from London's West Indian community, whose lives have been shaped by their own force of will despite rampant racism and discrimination.
Small Axe Amazon Prime Video billboard
In Mangrove, Letitia Wright stars as Altheia Jones-LeCointe a leading member of the British Black Panther Movement and Shaun Parkes as restaurant owner, Frank Crichlow, whose Notting Hill Caribbean eatery is subjected to continuous police harassment and raids. A peaceful protest leads to them and seven other people being wrongly arrested for incitement to riot and finding themselves defendants in the highly publicised 1970's Mangrove Nine trial.

Lovers Rock sees Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn and Micheal Ward meet and fall for each other at a reggae house party in early 1980s West London.

Red, White and Blue is based on another true story and sees John Boyega as Leroy Logan, a forensic scientist wanting to join the Metropolitan Police Force to change the racist system from within after his father is brutally beaten by the police in 1983.

The fourth film follows young Brixton DJ (played by Sheyi Cole) who is incarcerated during the Brixton Uprising of 1981. In prison he confronts his past and sees a path to his future in the true story of award-winning writer, Alex Wheatle.

And in Education, a bright 12-year-old boy named Kingsley Smith (Kenyah Sandy) is sent to a school for those with "special needs", which is really an unofficial segregation policy at play, until a group of West Indian women take matters into their own hands. 
Small Axe Collection of Five Films billboard
These Small Axe billboards were snapped above San Vicente Boulevard and La Cienega Boulevard from November 10 to 11, 2020.

For megaphone-themed ad creatives, make sure you check out this Dear White People billboard, this Glee billboard and these Kate Spade billboards.
Small Axe Amazon billboard
These films may be from another time, and another country, but their themes of systemic racism, discrimination, people of colour striving for equity and equality, the power of the people and the struggle against tyranny, are all too timely and relevant.

The film series title takes its name from the lyrics and meaning behind Bob Marley's 1973 song, Small Axe - "If you are the big tree, we are the small axe. Ready to cut you down, to cut you down".

A new film will debut every Friday from November 20 to December 18, 2020, so enjoy.

Sometimes you just need a good cry, a cathartic release to help make you feel better, especially in a year as challenging as 2020.

With limited time, he follows his dream, forms a band with his friends and makes an album, releasing the song 'Clouds' which becomes a huge hit and viral sensation before his passing.

This Disney+ movie billboard was spotted at La Brea Avenue and Sunset Boulevard on October 27, 2020.
