Specsavers has hit the streets with a striking billboard campaign to highlight the dangers of undertaking outdoor advertising installations without your glasses on.

Building on the brand‘s ‘Should‘ve 2.0‘ campaign, the slipshod posters have been commanding the attention of passersby in Leeds and London, with social media users warming to the cheeky displays.

Taking its theme to new extremes, the cowboy installations illustrate what happens when orientation goes awry with ‘Billboard Blunder’ and ‘Dodgy Install.’

A third poster, ‘Lost Ladder,’ goes one step further with a ladder, brush and paste bucket embedded within the billboard for a piece that transcends mere advertising and encroaches on modern art.

Developed by Specsavers’ in-house creatives The Agency, the work brings Specsavers back into the public consciousness with a £4m advertising campaign after falling out of sight since September 2020 for the Covid-19 lockdown.
