Seriously, who paid for this ridiculous billboard?

Sometimes life takes you by surprise, and for the people of Toronto, that feeling was recently triggered by a very peculiar ad. The billboard sitting high and mighty on Yonge-Dundas Square attracted a lot of attention this week after one man bought the space to advertise a... cheese string. 

Angel Domingo offered to trade a Black Diamond cheese string for 'offers'. The notably underwhelming design garnered a lot of attention on Canada's famous square. And while Domingo is still searching for a suitable trade, the ad has certainly brightened up our day. If you would like to have a go at designing your own billboard, then download Photoshop to get you started.
