Headvertising
ads Need to make a little extra money? Would you be willing to slap an advertisement on your forehead and parade around all day displaying it? The management team at Headvertise.com is hoping that you would, especially if you're a college student. Headvertise seems to be the creation of some students at Johnson & Wales University, and I'm betting it's either a joke, or some kind of bizarre class project. But who knows! I have seen stupider business plans in my day. (Link via J-Walk).

Not a hoax nor a silly class project, just two guys doing what they want, rather than working a silly retail job.

There is no way this isn't a hoax. Who'd want to put a sticker on there forehead, sure 100-200 dollars a week sounds good but what about tan lines and other effects of these stickers. It reminds me of the pepsi tattoo scam, what the H?

as for tadoos, tadoos is a real hoax, we are a business, there is a difference.

Hey,
I'm writting a dissertation on Body Advertising. I have found out that Headvertise Kapust-Allen Enterprises LLC has been sold to another company, but I don't know which. Do you know anything about it? I would like to contact them.
Thanks,
Claudia
