So I was just finishing up some crate digging (record shopping) on South Street (and I was in there for a while). As soon as I stepped back outside I saw 3 guys on scooters with ads attached. What’re the odds I was in the right place at the right time? I was meant to see them!

They were so fast there was no way I could even begin to get a picture. All I really noticed was that each of the riders were wearing the same colors as the ads (black, red, and white). I didn’t get a good enough look at the actual ads. All I caught was “better banking” and the website… Scooter Media. Nonetheless, it’s a cool idea.

Here’s a blurb from the site:

Scooter Media launched in Los Angeles in October 2004 with only a couple of salespeople, a small marketing team, and a hungry band of scooter pilots. Our mission was simple: introduce an exciting new way to advertise to U.S. consumers. Our method? Eye-catching and curious scooters with billboard trailers.

Here are some photos from Scooter Media’s portfolio:
