Charlie Sheen Shenanigans Make Way for ACLU Billboard in Times Square

Charlie Sheen’s loss is our gain: after the actor’s spectacular — ahem — career change in the past month, CBS halted production (then later cancelled) his show, Two and a Half Men, leaving video billboard space in Times Square available.

Enter the ACLU!

Neutron Media, which books the billboard, offered some of the empty space to us at a discount. So next time you’re in Times Square, check out our new ad on the north side of 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. It’s running up to 36 times a day from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. We’ll run this current ad through March, and then have a new one up next month.

ACLU: #Winning!
