Company That Rented Forehead Trying To Get Ahead Again

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The company that paid more than $37,000 to a man who auctioned his forehead on eBay as ad space is giving folks a heads up that they want a new human billboard.

The big wigs at SnoreStop – an anti-snoring nasal spray – are holding auditions for a new spokeshead willing to wear a tattoo of the product on their noggin for 30 days.

SnoreStop exec Christian de Rivel says the new spokeshead will be paid $37,375, and is sticking with the forehead because, in his words, “Why reinvent the wheel, when there’s a lot of wheels out there?”

De Rivel says the first forehead stunt was so successful, it made headlines as far as China, Japan and Europe. He says, “I was out of my mind, to the extent I had to see a doctor.”

The first round of auditions will be held in Hollywood on Aug. 12, with later casting dates to follow. The new forehead spokesperson will be announced Oct. 3 and certainly heads will roll.
