Laura very funny your comment that is, there has been a huge uproar about it here as well, there are two types of vans about 15 or more in the Greater Los Angeles....

Michael absolutely then neighborhoods are pretty angry, you can see these vans on Mulholland Dr parked in many high traffic areas...turns out most of them are not even registered for the road..... there is a green van just advertising two maid for a lesser hourly rate no indication of the clothing...

Roy if I went Topless people would run away it would hurt not help my goals:))

Raymond it is causing quite a stir in Los Angeles....

Debbie it is distracting, I remember when Car Wrapping only was popular in Europe....

I guess it depends upon what you're selling!  It must be working for them.

Dick yes we are all intrigued at the Target Market:)) there were a couple of News Specials in the past twelve months or so....many people who took the less expensive maids per hour were complaining about over charges...

Suzanne I guess this could be "emulated" ?? Maybe I am looking for a different word:)), Endre

Endre, I guess it depends on the market you are trying to reach.  A pink van isn't me, but hey!  It might work for these guys.

Might not work here in more conservative San Diego. Wonder what their ROI is? You have to admit, like it or not, it gets your attention

Tony & Darcy I go to the same school as you, if it could be seen as offensive or too controversial it is off my list...

Liz & Bill we are on the same page, it might be funny or not...I am a Realtor First not a comedian either:), Endre

Bob, I guess that is why you and I are not affluent :))

Laura the owner of the company has been in hot water, he is an Eastern European Immigrant with a nasty attitude and mean spirit....his ex wife has recognized his Voice that was played on the news as he was lambasting some clients who were complaining... evidently he does make a lot of money I could not afford 15+ vans to be used as billboards:))Endre

Bette I am sure it is not even "main stream" here on the left coast:)), Endre

Endre, it became a big fad for coffee shops (Spokane area) to have their girls serve while scantily clad in lingerie.  A shop I went to before it started had great coffee and attitudes.  Surprisingly after they started dressing in the lingerie the attitude went downhill as well as quality.  After years of being a regular I quit goint to this shop.  "SEX SELLS"  for a while.

Even though the business model would appear to be top heavy it would seem there is a demand for the product out in LA.

Thanks for keeping us abreast of the situation, Endre!

Endre, they were on the Ellen show.  Personally, I think we're all a little too hung up on the human body.

It's pretty silly.  Sounds like a front for something else though in reality.
