Don't take that razor to your beard just yet. Apparently, scruff is in these days and it could even help you make a few bucks without exerting any effort whatsoever. That's only if the 'Beardvertising' concept cooked up by a Kentucky-based ad agency called Cornett-IMS takes off.
Dubbed as 'real native advertising', Beardvertisers will have dudes with epic beards sporting beardboards on their--you guessed it--beards! A&W has already signed up with Cornett-IMF so keep your eyes peeled because you just might spot someone walking around with an ad clipped onto their beards.
Cornett-IMF's Whit Hiler says: "We're getting a ton of emails from guys with epic beards that want to host beardboards and we're actually in talks with some brands that want to be Beardvertisers. I think we'll probably be seeing some beardboards in the wild before too long."
Think your beard can make the cut? You can sign up at the Beardvertising website. Rates start at $5 a day, but hey, that's better than nothing.
