There’s Already an “Oprah for President” Billboard Up in DTLA

Oprah might still be brushing off rumors of a potential presidential run, but we’ve already got our first campaign ad, in the form of a 54-foot long billboard in downtown L.A.

The sign hangs on a building known as Casa Vertigo, which you’ve probably noticed if you’ve done any driving around the around the interchange of the 10 and 110 freeways. Casa Vertigo has made a reputation for itself with a series of unusual billboards, like the famous “KANYE 2020?” sign that was on display for several months in 2015 (and its sequel, “Pray for Kanye” in 2016).

Most of the billboards, including this new Oprah endorsement, feature the black-and-white smiley-face logo of I AM GAY USA, a clothing company owned by Shawn Farr, who also owns the building. Though, as LA Weekly reported in 2016, it’s not clear Farr himself would really be a Winfrey supporter—he was also responsible for a hate-mail-generating “TRUMP NOW” billboard around the time of the election.
