Skokie Billboard Highlights U.S./Canada Hockey Game, Reads ‘LOSER KEEPS BIEBER’
Since Justin Bieber’s recent run-ins with the law, many have been trying to get the American government to deport the Canadian singer back to his home country.
A creative billboard in Skokie proposes a different way to decide where Bieber belongs that avoids all that red tape mumbo jumbo that comes with our legal system: hockey.
Referencing the upcoming game at the Sochi Olympics between the U.S. team and Canadian hockey teams, which takes place tomorrow morning, the billboard displays Blackhawks Kane and Toews, playing for the US. and Canadian teams, respectively, with a photo of Justin Bieber between them.
Under the faces, the billboard simply says, “LOSER KEEPS BIEBER.”
Message heard loud and clear.
While it seems everyone here was probably already rooting for the U.S. team, a little extra incentive doesn’t hurt.

The billboard is off the Edens Expressway and owned by Command Transportation, a freight broker in Skokie.
They even have a Twitter account specifically for their electronic billboard: @CommandSign. The billboard often hosts fun or satirical ads, previously making fun of the recent polar vortex and the Chicago-based company Groupon, among other things.
Something tells me this won’t be the last time Command Transportation’s billboard lands in the news.
