SKOKIE, Ill. (WRIC)—On Friday, the United States and Canada will face off in the men's ice hockey semifinal at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Both teams are vying for the gold, but a creative Illinois billboard jests that the losing team may be taking home more than a silver medal.
Skokie, Ill.-based freight broker Command Transportation has a Twitter account for its electronic billboard, @CommandSign. The sign is well known for its fun, offbeat, comedic designs and messages.
On Thursday morning, @CommandSign tweeted, "Nothing is higher than the stakes of tomorrow's game." Attached was an image of the billboard, featuring Justin Bieber flanked by the Chicago Blackhawks' Patrick Kane and Canadian hockey player Jonathan Toews, who will face each other in Friday's Olympic semifinal. In all caps, the sign reads, "LOSER KEEPS BIEBER."
Bieber, 19, recently pleaded not guilty to misdeameanor charges of DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest in Miami Beach. The Canadian singer currently resides in the United States; in late January, an online petition asking President Obama to deport Bieber earned enough support for an official review by the Oval Office.
