Companies are making it easier for brands to plaster their ads on the sides of Ubers and Lyfts. While going back to the office has gotten a mixed response, few miss the commute. But brands miss inserting themselves into our rush hour, plastering their ads on subways, highways, or in Times Square, in hopes of capturing those barely opened eyeballs. 

While talking on the phone earlier today to a large national advertiser who has spent millions on everything BUT out of home, OOH to those of us on the inside, she asked me if I was referring to “billboards”. After I slammed my head on my desk multiple times, I said that why yes, billboards. But billboards are just a part of OOH. In fact not all OOH are boards on old wooden poles at the side of Route 1 near an exit. She laughed at first, but asked me to explain.
