Bad Idea of the Day: Hanging a Mannequin Off a Billboard

Sign will come down after calls from people thinking it's real.


A shocking billboard in Las Vegas adorned with the words "dying for work" and a mannequin dangling from a noose will be removed after motorists thought the dummy was a real person.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Jeremie Elliott said the agency began receiving reports of the black billboard with white lettering along Interstate 15 near Bonanza Road at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.
