While Barack Obama and Stephen Harper were busy betting a case of beer on the U.S.-Canada men’s Olympics hockey semifinal game on Friday, one Chicago billboard company was making the gutsiest bet of all time with our neighbors to the north.
The billboard, owned by Skokie-based freight broker Command Transportation, said that the loser of the highly anticipated contest “keeps (Justin) Bieber.” The pop star was born in Canada but resides in the States.
After America’s loss on Friday, the company quickly admitted to making the “worst bet ever,” and put a photo of a bald eagle with a “Belieber” gold chain around its neck for good measure.
Check out the two signs below.
Nothing is higher than the stakes of tomorrow’s game. http://t.co/usqJ9EPTpg—
