Anti-billboard ad hits the Internet

The backers of a plan to put billboards along a two-block stretch of Market Street may have picked up some key endorsements, DA Kamala Harris and Board of Supervisors President David Chiu among them.

But opponents have hit back with an ad and Website warning San Franciscans that allowing signs in one area is the first step towards plastering the Golden Gate Bridge with an electronic stock ticker and advertisements for fresh meat.

“If we allow them to exploit our city, where will it end?” asks the commercial, with major funding from San Francisco Beautiful.

Watch the ad here.

You can also check out a balanced, city-sponsored video here.

By the way, officials coming out against the plan include state Senator Mark Leno, Assemblyman Tom Ammiano and Supervisor John Avalos.
