They deliver

A house in our neighborhood. I have no idea why they're displaying banners of Shakey's Pizza and Jollibee on their fence. My guess is the family who lives there owns the franchise of the nearest branches.

Oh my. Here where I live that would not be permitted.

JM said...

This is an odd shot, no doubt! Banners on a private house?! It's a shame because we can not see it and it looks great...

Rambling Round said...

This is definitely different!

Olivier said...

en effet très étrange et surtout que c'est laid, quelle mauvaise idée. En France cela serait interdit.

indeed very strange, especially since it's ugly, what bad idea. In France it would be prohibited.

angela said...

It would certainly attract attention but, as Olivier says, we wouldn't be allowed to do that here.

Re. your comment on Valbonne. Those wrought iron bars aren't really balconies. They're there to stop people leaning out too far and falling.

Marc said...

If your theory is true, then this is an example of "blow your own horn". Or maybe they rented out their fence for advertising space.

Boise Diva said...

Community rules and city sign laws wouldn't allow that in our corner of the world....and I had no idea Shakey's pizza still existed at all. All the ones I ever knew about shut down in my area years ago.

JC said...

Proof positive... everyone has their price ;-)

Perhaps a residual privacy fence.

John said...

et bien, c'est pas drôle tout ceci, en France, je pense que cela serait simplement interdit !

enfin, je pense que l'on peut faire sa pub différement, mais peut-être est-ce bie, perçu chez vous ? !

George said...

I'm glad that house isn't in our neighborhood! But it would be interesting to know why the banners are there.

Sharon said...

Wow, signs like these would not be permitted in residential areas here. You made me do some checking. I didn't know that Shakey's Pizza was still in business. All the one's in Arizona are long gone but, I did discover that they do still exist in California and according the the link you provided, there are quite a lot of them in your part of the world.

RuneE said...

Advertise or burst, perhaps?

Halcyon said...

I think this definitely qualifies as an odd shot. I don't think our neighborhood association would allow advertising in front of our home. :)

Lois said...

They would not allow that here either! Very interesting.

mirage2g said...

Hmmm....I'd like to have a delivery though...lol. Matagal na deliver jollibee?

craig said...

Certainly an odd shot! Nice find.

Happy new year.

April said...

Oh that looks all green and I see: 23 degrees at your place. And here we are awaiting frost ...

Jarart said...

That looks like a beautiful home hidden behind all that garish clutter.

lunarossa said...

Apart from the banners, the green around the house looks stunning. I wish it was as warm here as well. EnjoY the sunshine! Ciao. A.

Lily Hydrangea said...

This is a great odd shot!
I think you are guessing right.

Eki Akhwan said...

A smart way to advertise ... :D Does the city/municipality has the right to tax advertisement placed in one's own fence? (Just wondering, Hilda.).

Destitute Rebel said...

Interesting shot! Maybe they get paid to advertise on their fence. In Pakistan we have huge billboards on some peoples roofs.

RaesMom said...

That is very odd. In a world where people will auction off the name of their unborn child, I would not be surprised if this is a new form of advertising.

PAK said...

Maybee because of money for 'advertising'? In Poland on many houses you can see such banners. (It is forbidden, but there is a legal loophole, and may people uses it.)

Hilda said...

Only upscale neighborhoods here have aesthetic rules. Almost everywhere else, you can pretty much post anything on your house or fence as long as it's not pornographic or violent.

JC:
Nothing residual about this fence. Almost all houses in Metro Manila have privacy fences or walls.

Eki:
I have no idea. But I suspect not as long as it's not a billboard.

Gizelle:
It was an on-and-off thing for many years. They only got the delivery service ironed out the past two years or so. Very reliable now. Except that the branch assigned to our area always doesn't have the salads I like!

Katney said...

Such a tasteful almost elegant home and this. Crazy!

the donG said...

i think so! hahaha... unless they were paid for that.

Neva said...

That certainly is an odd shot and interesting decor!

J. Villanueva Cabrera said...

I think Jollibee and Pizza Hut are paying the owner of this house to advertise on their fence. A new advertising strategy?
