Rolling Rock beer, which is actually an Anheuser-Busch brand, plans a new kind of advertising campaign: moonvertising. They describe it on their website as:
a new, more tasteful advertising campaign this year: putting our logo on the moon - moonvertising. And now, using this revolutionary website, you can broadcast your own message on the moon as well.

I agree. Leave the moon alone. Nothing good ever came from anything named Busch/Bush anyway.

I'm glad to see everyone here is disgusted by the "moonvertising" notion. Hold on for the reaction from the Muslim world - to them the moon is a sacred symbol and many considered the U.S. to be desecrating it when we landed there. This "advertising" scheme might convince even more of them that we are, indeed, the "great satan."

It is OUR moon anyway. You didn't see Mo-hammit sending up a prayer-camel rocket to take it did you? F-'em.

I agree with Iria - I doubt it can be done. I'll believe it when I see it.

I have no doubts it can be done but it definitely should not be done. The moon belongs to everyone, it's not a billboard in the sky. I am going to let Anheuser-Busch know how I feel.

Desecrate? Oh No! We are already at war with these believers. How could we make them more mad? They already destoyed the twin towers and flew planes into the pentagon! How could we make them more angry?
I was told a story that a certain muslim bedowin tribe worshipped the moon as the one and only god. The leader of that tribe it is said was actually an epilieptic that pretended to have visions from god to avoid being assassinated as a undesirable leader. His 9 year old concubine that survived her parents murder by his morading tribe of bedowin robbers was kept alive for pleasure. When she was not being abused she would tell bible stories to her abuser. He would incorporate these mixed up versions of bible stories into his Visions. A Kidnapped Hebrew scribe was forced to record these stories now known as a holy book. The scribe placed coded symbols in the book indicating to the enlightened ones that it was nonsense mixed with self glorification of a dictator who wanted his god to be the supreme god. It was told to me that way. In this book believers are commanded to kill infidels. That would be Homsexuals, Christians, Hebrews, Mormons, Jehovas witnesses, Catholics, Bahi, Budists, and any other person that does not worship the moon. Get it yet. If they take over you are Dead.

I'm still unclear how they are going to do this. Sorry if I'm being slow here. A projection of some kind. This wouldn't actually hurt the moon. Sorry to hear that there could be a negative impact. Please enlighten me to how this process works.

Laser projection, probably, or some other monochromatic light. Also, I think they would have to project from a satellite so that the earth's atmosphere wouldn't diffuse the beam.

No, it wouldn't hurt the moon any. Lasers are already being shone on it to measure its exact location (its orbit is expanding about two inches a year). But I do think it would seriously degrade our view of it.

By the way -- by international agreement nobody "owns" the moon.

In related developments...the Marrs candy company has inquired into the purchase of a laser beam billboard to place its logo on the surface of planet mars.Spokesman Andy Granetelli announced that the venerable candymakers public relations board has awarded a $444,876.22 study grant open to the public towards other ideas for space marketing.

The concept of using the moon as a billboard is just disgusting. It is a sign that corporate capitalism has gone mad. Very, very sad.
Boycott Anheuser-Busch for thinking about it and mentioning the idea.
