The city probably has some guidelines or ordinances regarding homes painted completely advertising someones brand.

    I own a marketing agency. BrainiacsFromMars hit the jackpot with their press agency. Free Advertising that caused a stir during the housing crisis. Who’s next. Whats next. Only time will tell.
