Clear Channel Celebrates Independence Day with Cross-Country Digital Billboard Display

With the 4th of July right around the corner, I figured what better topic to blog about this week than our country’s Independence Day! No, I’m not going to give you a history lesson on how our country came about… instead, I found something much more exciting!

This year (more specifically in the last 2 weeks), Clear Channel Outdoor has put together the first ever cross-country digital billboard display. The cross-country campaign will run from July 4th to July 7th displaying the lyrics of “The Star Spangled Banner” on more than 1,000 digital billboards in different cities across the United States.

The goal of Clear Channel Outdoor’s cross-country patriotic campaign is to harness “the immediacy and flexibility of its digital out-of-home media to unite the nation in celebration of Independence Day.” ( Clear Channel Outdoor is also enouraging Americans to show their patriotic spirit by posting photos or videos of how they celebrate the 4th of July on various social media sites using #united4th.

Take a look and see if this campaign has traveled to your neck of the woods:
