OMG YEEEEEEEEESWhere?OMFG!!1 IS THAT BARHAM BLVD!?
I drive by that sucker every morning. YAY.
Hoax you say?I think not!
BRONIES SHALL RULE THE EARTH!! one major state at a time...
Wow, that big huh?
It's on Barham Blvd, here in Los Angeles, as you cross over the Hollywood Freeway.
@AnonymousFUCKING YES!It's only ten minutes from me!Screw my job, I'm going to go look at that RIGHT NOW
That's awesome. Really awesome. I just wish I could go see it :/
What happened to twilight's leg?
Ooooh boy, that's a big billboard O_OIf I passed next to it, I would step out of my car and salute it, Rainbow Dash style.
In the words of Fluttershywoo-hoo
Freaking awesomeShame i live out in the sticks....in englandI would totally do something like this if i loved in a major city
Oh man I hope cars don't get in any accidents from the awesomeness of this billboard.
Pics or it didn*...well what'da know! It was real!
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Curses, I'm in LA but no where near that. Still, I feel a weekend trip needs to be made. Oh, now there is an event idea. Get a bunch of bronies to take a picture with the billboard in the background.
Everyone: "And what, bitch?"Pinkie: "I don't even know what's going on here!"
Am I the only one who expects it to be burnt down by someone?
I honestly don't think Twilight Sparkle would know that word.Maybe YESYESYESYESYESYES or 'I will now teleport Trixie to Sethisto as a sign of friendship'.Here's what Applejack would say: Aw shoot that there billboard doesn't get my good side fer nothing.My thoughts on what Pinkie would say: WOOHOO I'VE ESCAPED INTO THE REAL WORLD NOW VOTE FOR ME AND I'LL BE THE PARTY PRESIDENT. Or something along those lines.
I'm beginning to wonder how those pony haters would react when they see this billboard.problemhaters?.jpg
GoogleMaps: http://is.gd/zWppeTWe need to get this on the photos/street view of that!
Nothing quite puts a smile on your face like a billboard covered in Ponies.
I honestly expected to see a lot of confused pedestrians just staring up at it like "WTF?"Besides that point, this is just awesome!
Hell yeah!This is fckin' awesome.Too bad I live in England. :(
Guys guys guys. We need to ask Valhalla Motion Pictures how they feel about GIANT FREAKIN' PONIES above their offices.SRSLY.
I, uh, what?!This can't be real.
For those interested, the building's address is:3201 Cahuenga Boulevard WestLos Angeles, CA 90068-1301
Awwwyeah.jpgNow these just need to multiply.
This billboard must be put in every major city across the U.S.And a few in England and Germany once the show starts airing there.
This needs to pop up around the FL cities. I'd be happy, and will get teased for it.
It's hard to tell because digital billboards are very high quality these days, but...Is this a digital billboard or the old fashioned kind? I'm hoping the latter, which means it'll be up longer! :)
So where are all of those anon's who were calling us "fucktards" for believing this, now?
and now waiting for the news story about how the billboard misrepresents the show.
inb4 it gets burnt down.
Fluttershy has the best expression.
Oh sweet merciful fuck, this if the best thing ever!!! I thought they were just BSing about it being on a billboard, but....holy shit.BEST DAY EVER!!!!
According to google maps, it would take me 21 hours and 0 minutes to get there from BC, Canada.Road trip anyone?
Ha, yeah-eah :D I'll be expecting to welcome more to the herd >:) God, I hope they bring this billboard to NYC. *Rarity voice* Please, please, please, pleeeeaase!
My day.It has been made.
My little ponies......even sexier than usual.
This is amazing. I want to see it so bad, but with gas prices so high, nah. Pics are good too.
Geographic coordinates...34.129018,-118.346776Locked on. Fire the friendship beam!
YOU SHALL BE ASSIMILATED INTO THE HERDJOIN THE REVOLUTIONFIGHT FOR PONIES*Me* ...okay! :D
Now someone HAS to make a Bridesmaids PMV...
Holy.... AWWWW YEEEEEEEAAAH!This just made my day. No really. :D
Why is this making me so damn happy? WHY???I think logically and it seems so trivial, but it still has me grinning constantly...Haven't felt like this about any TV show in a VERY long time.
Hey Valhalla worked on The Walking Dead. We need gigantic ponies in every city.
this is nothing short of amazing
@zorinlynxDude, I'm the same way about this show. It's like injecting pure happiness into my bloodstream, and I'd dare not have it any other way. :D*resumes listening to his pony music playlist*
This is so epic. Just plain epic. No doubts.
I've never felt bad to live in New York, until now.
Holy shit they actually did it.I no longer love Hasbro, I am IN love with Hasbro.They need to put up more of these.I would pay all of my money and then some if they were to sell the print on the billboard when they take it down.It would be excellent siding for my house.
@Anonymous you didn't notice? she has knees now apparently.
OH GOD. SO MUCH WIN.
That place is too crowded for it to be burnt down, or at lest the people doing it would get caught
>Billboard above ValhallaBY ODIN'S BEARD!
Five of them are ready for a fight. Pinkie Pie is ready for some cupcakes.
ponies are taking over the world, this is a fact of life
@Pen StrokeThere is a brony meet up at Anime Expo this week i will try to get them to do this
This, AND Transformers 3 later today???BEST DAY EVER!
Might just cause traffic accidents with that much awesome distracting the drivers from those lights.
I might get a driving license just so I can go see this
Looks cool... the problem is it's over the Atlantic :Dmarkocezar
Words cannot describe how awesome this is.
OMG. I WAS LIKE...TOTALLY SURE THAT THE HUB WAS JUST TROLLING US. THIS BILLBOARD IS SO AWESOME!!!!
YEEEEHAAAAWWWW!!! Ponies on huge billboards, f*beeep* yeah !!!I know this isn't brony-like, but I feel sorta satisfied now.Imagine all the trolls and haters now being slammed in the face with a huge billboard of ponies ON THE ROAD, MWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *instert mad Fluttershy laughter*The world will be ours by bronies !!!
@AnonymousNot even math, or physics!markocezar
This will be the spot bronies everywhere will take a pilgrimage to.
This would be awesome if on Google maps street view this showed up.
@EwyndallWest USA is being taken over, I'll take care of the Balkan. Be ready for a total world domination >:D
Bridlemaids? Is that a pun?
Hey Sith,Why don´t you ask for pics of all the billboards around USThe Brony take over is happeningResistance is FutileEveryone will be assimilated into the herd
@markocezarOnce I return to Bulgaria, I shall aid you in this endeavor! In fact, I've already converted one guy from Bulgaria over the Internet.
We need something like that here in St. Louis...
The world will know!
One more thing.This makes me want to jump out of my window (don't worry it's just 3 meter off the ground) land on the feet all matrix like, slowly looking up and yelling: "WORLD, YOU ARE BEING TAKEN OVER!! BOW DOWN TO THE BRONY POWA AT ONCE!! OR BE BRONIFIED!!!"I want everypony that feels this way to reply! CUZ WE'RE STARTING A REVOLUTION HERE!
@Lord EdwardTHAT'S THE SPIRIT MY FRIEND, WHOLE YUGOSLAVIA WILL BE BRONIFIED TOO, If my friends get infected, and the whole Yugoslavia is pretty stubborn, so it'll take time. But don't wory... sooon.... soooooooooooon....
@markocezar*salutes* Roger !!!I will cover your flank here from Hungary!!! We will hold our ground till the bronies take over the UK and can safely come over to the maneland !@AnonymousI didn't know it either till someone pointed me to it.It's actually a pun for a movie this year called Bridemaids .Google it and check the poster, you will understand :)((http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1478338/))
Uuuuummm....Where's Rarity's second front leg?
HASBRO DELIVARS>show this to pony haters>????>profit!
We need one of these in Houston!
I like how it's on top of Valhalla
damn I live 3000 miles away from there :(
I live in da UP, for those of you that don't know what that means... I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan... anywhere you go is trees and nothing else... ಠ_ಠ... FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! I can never go see that in person.
I'm grinning like a madman right now...This is so epic.
ATTITUDEThey have it.
I'm taking the next flight to Los Angeles.
Hub really is being so awesome to us. I can't help but think that this billboard is more intended to appeal to adult fans/attract new ones than it is to advertise to kids.
So according to Google maps, it would take a day and 11 hours to get to this billboard from my home in Tennessee. *Ahem* ROAD TRIP!! :D
A bit strange that a billboard came up there. Is MLP made in LA?
There is something I realized, just 80000 bronies aren't ashamed of being bronies. Here you have over 14 million hits, facebook just 80 thousand.DON'T BE ASHAMED OF YOUR RIGHT MIND, IF YOU LIKE YOU'LL SPREAD THE INFECTION MUCH FASTER! So LIKE if you want the domination. If you don't have a facebook, MAKE IT JUST FOR THIS. THIS HAS TO BE, NOT CONTINENTAL, but GLOBAL!
dang it! i wish they displayed that here in mexico xD
awesomeness. it knows no bounds :DI've never been so happy about a billboard before. And trust me, I've seen some pretty exciting billboards in my time.
@DJ KatDJ KAT!Are you the DJ Kat from Paheal or did I just embarrass the hell out of you? If you are, thanks for all the pics.
Scientologists only WISH they had this kind of power
@zorinlynxSo true. I've never been on a forum or messageboard for any tv show before now. Now, my hard drive is mostly pony fan art.
Here in Balkan we are 9 hours ahead, so... it comes... later... DUMB MATH!
Just liek dis mah bronies! http://memebase.com/2011/06/26/memes-ponies-are-contagious/
@Anonymous (12:50 PM)Yep, it's a pun - the movie poster it's based on is "Bridesmaids", and a "bridle" is a part of a horse's harness. Hence, bridle + Bridesmaids = Bridlemaids.This picture totally made my week. SO AWESOME.
Hoping to see one of these in Houston in the near future.
@coolpowersI guess the next billboard above that studio should be a mix of the two!
Tis a good day to be a Bronie.
Honestly I think I'm stunned, I've never seen a cartoon advertised on a billboard before. And for it to be MLP...Well, thats just outstanding!
*Gaaaaaaasp* *yay*It's a shame i live in england or i'd bo looking at that right now :(
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PUT ONE IN DALLAS
Wooooo... Or better yet...Eyup
Man... I'm some three hundred miles from LA.Wish I could, but I can't go see it...
I would die happy to see one of these in Boston!Brony Pride Equestria Wide!
VALIDATION!!!! HAH! Suck it MMS!
Ok ok for this I will take the 101 rather than I-5 something I have been doing anyway.. now I have a more legit reason... heeehehehe. This would make my day if I have to climb the Tejon/Grapevine from Colton.
Going by their size, relative to the door below them, they are about the size of a person. That is awesome. I want cutouts to stand around my house, lol.
This particular billboard is right next to Universal Studios. That's near the main freeway exit. So non-ponyfans are going to be exposed to this for months going in and out of Universal. it's BRILLIANT marketing I tells ya.
Heck yeah! We do need one of these in Houston, so I can show all of my anti-Brony friends and watch them despair as they realize we are taking over this joint!
So show them photos of THIS one
It IS a parody of BRIDESMAIDS, whihc surprisingly has 90% approval on Rottentomatoes.comAll the positive reviews came from male critics. Coincidence? Maybe we should go see this movie. (Even though it LOOKS like a chick flick)
I live in Iowa. Oh god, they're never going to put something like that up in Iowa. :(
Right, I am so getting my dad to put on of these up in his office window, the UK needs one of these. I can imagine the faces of the chavs of Stoke On Trent now.
Shaun, was that ENGLISH you just wrote? CHAV? Stoke on TRent? :}
at least you don't have to LIVE in Los Angeles. I hate it.
Hmhmhm, I approve. ♥
I sorta miss living in LA now
That really is one of the most amazingly awesome things ever. Would love to see that in person!
No one can say it is not real any more. Now we Just need one in Toronto and I would be super happy.I just hope there are no accidents from people doing a double take looking at the billboard. And being next to a freeway exit people will have to notice it. They will say "What is this? Is this supposed to be My Little Pony?" They will be compelled to find out information about it watch the show with (or with out) their kids, become fans of the show and buy all the toys on the market. If Hasbro puts one (or one like it) in every major city they wont know what to do with all the money.When I see this I can't help but think that Hasbro/The Hub are taking a page from the Brony handbook and creating pony mashup-parodies to advertise the show. "Equestria Girls" is basically a PMV only official. (Yes it was an act of acknowledgment/appreciation to the Bronies but it is still and ad ment to gather intrest in the show, and by extension the merchandise.) How many people here first took an intrest in the show after seeing some Youtube video?Sure the billboard is not an accurate representation of the show, but it does not have to be, it IS an Ad, a billboard ad at that. Drivers are only going to get a quick look at it before driving by but that quick look will be all that is needed. Its purpose is to get your attention and make you want to find out more about what you just saw. And this billboard will do just that.
@TopoCruzI'm with you on the FL thing, I live in Jacksonville myself. I so jelly of LA right now.
I bet they will make more
EPIC. I love everything just now. I'm having a good day.
THE INTERNET IS LEAKING! ABANDON THREAD!
I live in the UK, but am going to LA soon on holiday. Will keep an eye out.
Too bad ponies couldn't stop the dragon from covering LA in a hundred year dark haze.
*looks under the billboard.* That place is called Valhalla motion pictures, how ironic xD
It's about time we got one of these
I agree with the 3 other guys that said we need one here in Houston. Hey, it's the 4th largest U.S. city (population-wise), after all.
Oh lawdy.......Assimilation is nearly coooommplleeettteee....
We need one in Dallas...Now.
In the words of Rarity:"TAKE THAT RUFFIAN!"
Come on! Get one of these to San Francisco ASAP!
Hopefully people won't look for a show called "Bridlemaids" on TV or something...
i think this is advertising the show for adults, kids wouldn't get it. Does this mean Hasbro is recruiting Bronies?
@Crimson ValorI THINK SONEXT TO THAT GRAVEYARD PLACE THING
i drive by this shit daily
ff- that bridge and that traffic xDDD
whoa that's awesome and that's in LA! They should also post one in every major city in the US! lol
i'm extremely ok with this
Epic billboard is epic. I would kill to have one of these on the east coast. However, I dont need to kill. THEORETICALLY, i could save a copy of the base image, loose some sleep, and pay a visit to one of the two digital billboards around the corner from where I live. Theoretically. I have no idea how to hack into the billboards though. I hope however, that this post has inspired several nights of MLP-related billboard hacking.
Valhalla? BY ODINS BEARD, THIS IS GLORIOUS!
I'm pretty sure the address is3201 Cahuenga Boulevard West, Los Angeles, CA
Judging by google street view, it seems that the Hub advertises on that particular billboard fairly regularly.
@Anonymous*PFFFFT!*Just do it the old fashioned way - print out tiny little bits of the image and paste it piece by piece onto the billboard of you choice. All you need is several days, gallons of toner, and a bucket of glue. Bonus points if you work in an office supply store and manage not to spend a dime on this endeavor!
Ruling the world, one pony at a time....
@Anon who replied to me:That would imply that I had:A: access to a colour printerB: money to pay for printingC: glueand D: the ability to avoid the authorities for one to two days, maybe even three, while still putting up a complete billboard. So yeah, my best option would be to just hack. 'Sides, cops around here are pretty stiff. Lots of gangs in this area.
By Celestia, it's real! It's really real!This is.. truly amazing. Not just because of, ya know, recognition by a major company of it's fringe demographic (which is quite possibly the primary audience by now), but.. think about it. We're getting a degree of love from Hasbro, whom co-own the Hub, so they're behind this.. which Transformers and G.I. Joe fans only rarely enjoyed..
>Frustrated over death of headphones.>Goes to Equestria Daily.>Sees this.>Happy now :)Also, give it a week or 2 and that town will be populated entirely by Bronies.
I didn't think this would actually happen.I'm so happy =D
Pinkie Pie's first step through the fourth wall, as seen by non-bronies.
My question is: WHO put this up? Hasbro? Or did a fan pay big money?Can a fan even do that?
@dark: anything is possible with enough cash...
*Looks at sign below* Apparently ponies are above Valhalla. Good to remember when we're listing planes.
I'm thinking Hasbro's realized a couple of things.1. Cartoons created as half-hour commercials for toys really don't work.2. Shows that are good on their own merits sell merch anyway. 3. People between the ages of 15 and 30 tend to have more disposable income than people between the ages of 6 and 10.That being said, I hope they leave the writers alone and don't try to turn FIM into Family Guy or something. THAT being said, I don't think anyone would be complaining if they made some premiumer merch.
I think the sign is great! I love Anime and stumbled across HUB about 1 1/2 months ago. Yes I am a Broney and am 61 years old!!!! The art work, the stories, the sound effects and the wonderful ponys!!! I actually know some of them. My great aunt was Pinkie Pie! The songs are a lot of fun like Pinkie boinging around singing about the gala. I also loved "The art of the dress". Who ever wrote the song actually knows sewing!! I just busted a gut when I saw the billboard. Hara! I am in the works of DVDing the whole set of stories. I hate to tell ya how many times I have watched them already! Thank you so much Lauren Faust!!!!!!! Big hugs from all of us.I can't wait for the second season!!!!!If you would like to check some fantastic Anime look into Five centimeters per second-Figure 17-Gunslinger Girl-Samurai Champloo-Kino's journey-I My Me Strawberry eggs-Air-Chance Pop-Somedays Dreamer-Eden of the East-Oban Star racers-Spice and Wolf -Millennium actress-anything from studio gihbli. In the box sets from them is a story called "Only Yesterday" about farming in Japan. A true beauty of a story. Jeffcat
Oh, google street view~ There's a street that needs updating~And bring the Hubble cam, you're gonna need some extreme detail.
As an editor/admin on Wikipedia and trying to improve the MLPFIM article, if whomever took these images (or can take these) would be willing to release one or more into the Creative Commons (showing the board no larger than these photos have it), I can certainly use that image on the MLPFIM article.
Holy crap. They're actually doing this. They're actually consciously, actively going after an older demographic for MLP. Not just relying on our word-of-mouth, but actually advertising in a way to grab the attention of more than just 10 year old girls.I'm floored by this, I really am. yay~
I would buy a billboard for our town out in nowhere Alberta-ville just so we could put that up and never take it down.
Brohooves all around!
inb4 bronies moving there.The only thing they could have done to make the it better is Pinkie's head sticking outside of the billboard, breaking the 4th wall as usual :P
Me and a couple friends are going to go down to it tomorrow and each leave one of our pony figures at the bottom of it.
ok where in cali is that?
Man, I wish I lived in that house just behind and to the right of the billboard, I'd get somebody to take a picture from the street with me on the balcony...
This is the greatest thing I've ever seen
@MasemI'm the one who took the photos. What exactly do I need to do to release them to CC?
Is it real?Holy mother of corn! :3I can't believe it but yet the fact is exciting!
Lauren disapproves! O:http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1603670/2065476113
Yo quiero ir, pero vivo en Tijuana, ROAR TRIP CABRONIES!!!
Hasbro should totally offer this as a poster and a T-Shirt. And do more parodies! How about one called "Horse" (parody of "House") or of course "Dr. Hooves" (Dr. Who)?
Converting the world one billboard at a time.
something tells me they won't be complaining about the traffic light(HuffytheMagicDragon)
That is so freaking awesome!
hm... hmmm... ha... HAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAA AAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA AAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAHAHA HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA HAHAHA AAA AAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AAAAH AAAAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA!that describes perfectly my reaction whit the first image
I've just noticed something... I've been saying "That's the most awesome thing ever" a lot recently. And, for the last several weeks, every time I've said it, it's been something pony-related :PSo, yes, that's the most awesome thing ever :D
