Echo Park billboard needs a spell check

Photo by Mike Lisboa

There is plenty to see at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Alvarado Street in Echo Park but it was a typo in the  Romeo Santos billboard that caught Mike Lisboa’s attention.  Said Lisboa:

This typo on the billboard at Sunset and Alvarado is both glaring and hilarious. Who needs copy editors, right?

Who else caught that typo?

  1. Ugh, nobody cares about spelling or grammar these days. It’s annoying.

  2. They left the “s” off of “hit”?

  3. I spotted this typo while driving on Sunset last week. As a copy editor, it hurts my eyes! I wonder whether Romeo Santos’ people would pay to have it fixed.

  4. Too lazy to Google him. Is this guy real, or is this one of those self-promoting Hollywood types that buys a billboard and chocks it full of hyperbole?

  5. saw one not long ago that had a picture of a guy and they had photoshopped a tattoo of the album title on his arm, but the thing was flat, no perspective. it didn’t follow the lines of his arm like a real tattoo. the cheapness of the whole thing really bummed me out.

  6. @skeeter This guy is for real. He is the lead singer of bachata group Aventura. He is now venturing into a solo career in the Latin music industry. He had an estimated thousand people show up for a meet and greet on Nov. 8 at the Best Buy in West L.A.

    But anyways this annoys me because I have a B.A., can’t find a job, and would feel lucky if I had a job where all I needed to do was ensure that stuff was spelled correctly.

  7. not very sophistimicated ; )

  8. Anticiaption is making me wait


    To Pollaux, CC & Woman on Hill: You’ve said it for all of us!

    We did it on purpose to get all you smarty pants to talk about it! Haha! It worked!

  11. Wow… I thought I’d stumbled upon something new, but decided to do a quick bit of research to see if anyone else had passed comment on it, Internet-wise. I guess the funny thing about it now is that, as of 13 January 2012, anyway, it’s still up! 😀

    It’s certainly an argument against the new way of doing things, where massive vinyl banners can be printed so hastily and stretched over displays that used to require a lot more effort to put together…
