WOULD YOU RENT OUT YOUR FOREHEAD FOR $37,375?
OMAHA, Neb ---
A Web-page designer who auctioned off the use
of his forehead for advertising space is letting
it go to his head.

Andrew Fisher, 20, of Omaha, who put his forehead
for sale on eBay as advertising space, received
$37,375 on Friday to advertise the snoring remedy
SnoreStop.

Fischer will display the SnorStop logo on his
forehead for one month.

"I look forward to an enjoyable association
with Andrew -- a man who clearly has a head for
business in every sense of the word",
SnoreStop CEO Christian de Rivel said.

"People will always comment on something out
of the ordinary," Fischer said his sales pitch.
"People like weird".

But there were limits: He refused from the outset
to be the conduit for any message or products deemed
tasteless or unacceptable in traditional advertising formats.
