Even though the economy sucks, Freebord is still working on getting the word out there with some online advertising. But this time around we’re letting our riders speak for us. Cuz we think sometimes you guys can say it best.
Announcing the Ask A Rider campaign. We’re running banners on a bunch of websites including Vice Magazine, VBS.tv, Jackassworld, AlliSports and more, giving people a real number to call a rider and talk to them about Freebord. There’s nothing like hearing it straight from the source.
For our first run we chose Team member and Rider of the Year 08 Bob Glashan and equipped him with a dedicated cell phone just to answer calls from whoever decides to see if it’s a real person on the other end. Why? Bob’s a ripping rider, he’s been around the company for a while, and well, his name looks hella funny on a banner. So ask us whatever you want – Bob is standing by.
Check out our banners in action – screenshots from Vice, VBS.tv, Jackassworld and AlliSports.
creative advertising. hi bob.
-jay was here!
this is hilarious! bob is going to be getting calls at all hours of the night from people wondering who/what freebord is, and why they are talking to bob about it.
lol awesome. I will do it if Freebord sends me a phone! 😀
I think that Bob is a courageous person. (That’s right: his name is very funny!)
Don’t forget to put off the cell phone at nights!
yeah boob! congrats on the ad 🙂
Very cool. How many calls so far?
This is got to be the weirdest idea you guys (Freebord) have ever cooked up. Bob…good luck with that. Next shoud be Freeborders Anonymous with Stevie-B or Laudin as Chapter President. (This is just too much)…(but hey, what do I know) =) love ya guys

mtv advertises jackassworld. jackassworld advertises freebord. mtv advertises freebord. freebord has sold out. logic is a deadly thing.
Sold out? Im sorry, why wouldnt you want more people to ride with? Logic is indeed very deadly
mtv does not give a rat’s ass about freebord, and probably never will. that’s fine with us. don’t call us sellouts until we start sponsoring ryan sheckler
