There’s an Apple iPod ad in Boston, with a trail of political intrigue behind it.
The Boston Globe has the story of how the giant-sized iPod ad won approval, and it seems a tale of influence, persistence and deep, deep pockets.
The story begins: “The mayor’s campaign treasurer acknowledged this week that he called the Boston Redevelopment Authority two years ago about the permitting process for a massive iPod banner ad along the Southeast Expressway, an outsize display that Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s administration ultimately endorsed, despite its usual discouragement of new billboards.”
