Billboard Gets Massive Attention + Causes Controversy [PICTURE]

A billboard of a soldier and a Muslim woman started making waves after it recently appeared in L.A. The two are a real couple — but what are they advertising?

Twitter

This billboard on Sunset Boulevard is for SnoreStop sleep aid, which is meant to emphasize how the product can save couples. On the billboard is a hashtag, the slogan “keeping you together” and the picture of a soldier and a woman embracing him with a wedding ring on. But people in L.A. have spoken about their concern for the ad.

SnoreStop spokeswoman Melody Devemark, defending the product, said:

“We want to show couples that you normally don’t see in advertising. People feel that we are trying to misuse the image of military servicemen. I think they don’t understand that there are couples like this that do exist”, according to the Huffington Post.

The couple shown on the billboard is actually a real-life couple. Many critics and advertising agencies think that the billboard is awesome. It’s not an ad for a religion-based product, so this ad just shows that the culture has accepted the relation between different cultures.
