#47 Ann Arbor Stories: The Billboard Bandits

Wed, 04/11/2018 - 6:10pm

When: April 11, 2018

The shrill, biting, staccato whine of a chainsaw pierces the cold, night air. Thud. Another billboard falls to the ground along a highway in southern Michigan.

An estimated 167 billboards in all—cut, chopped, and chainsawed—along highways throughout Michigan, mostly in the vicinity of Ann Arbor. The papers called this group The Billboard Bandits. But they weren't the only ones terrorizing good old fashioned marketers in town.
