Scorned wife's 'billboard revenge' really restaurant marketing stunt

March 21 (UPI) -- A Greensboro, North Carolina billboard was slowing traffic this week and photos of it spread across the internet. The mock advertisement took the formula of familiar MasterCard commercials.

Michael,
GPS Tracker – $250, Nikon Camera with zoom lens – $1600, Catching my lying husband and buying this billboard with our investment account, – Priceless. – Jennifer.

WGHP contacted the billboard company to find out if the message was for real. They did not know but said they would contact the billboard's sponsor to find out. In the meantime, the ad changed Thursday, to a new message from scorned wife Jennifer.

This mock billboard message from a woman to her cheating husband was really just a publicity stunt by a company which owns several Greensboro, N.C. restaurants. (Screenshot via WGHP)

“Jessica – Meet me at Yodaddy’s at 7:00 p.m. for some wine therapy. -Jennifer.”

The company that purchased the billboard ad was Kotis Holdings, which owns a Yo Daddy's location and several other restaurants in Greensboro.
