Mysterious Billboard Puts Obama’s Face on $100,000,000,000,000 Bill, Asks: 'But Who Will Pay the Piper?'


By Pete Winn, Senior Writer/Editor

( - Thanks to an advertiser who wishes to remain anonymous, cars and trucks on Arizona Highway 260 in East Central Arizona are driving by a billboard advertisement that recently went up, bearing President Obama’s face on what appears to be a mock U.S. $100,000,000,000,000 (One-Hundred Trillion Dollar) bill.

The billboard’s caption: “But Who Will Pay the Piper?”

Chuck Perrine of Jones Outdoor advertising in Tucson, Ariz., confirmed to that his company created the 10 ft- by-40 ft. billboard, which he said “went up within the last month.”

Perrine said the sign is located “near Linden (Ariz.),” but said that the advertiser is “not interested” in disclosing any further information about his identity--or his reason for purchasing the ad. 

“I’m sorry, I can’t give you any information about the advertiser whatsoever,” Perrine told Monday. “That’s part of his contract with us.”

The billboard, which was rented for an undisclosed sum, will remain up for an undisclosed period of time, Perrine said
