You really can’t make this stuff up, nor would you want to……
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WANE/WSBT) – An embarrassing billboard spelling error on a sign meant to tout South Bend schools has been pulled.
The billboard is a digital one near the intersection of State Road 23 and Ironwood in South Bend. It went up on Thursday and was pulled Monday morning.
The billboard encouraged people to go to “southbendon.com” to check out the “15 best things about our PUBIC schools.” Obviously it was supposed to say “public”, but the “l” was left out.
Lee MacMillan said his wife first spotted it on Saturday.
“She got home and said ‘I can’t believe it said what I think it said,’ so we were out driving around yesterday and sure enough, it had that typo in it, so we took a pic and the rest is history as they say,” said Lee MacMillan.
The president of a company called “the Blue Waters Group” told WSBT-TV the mistake was not made by the city or the schools. He said the ad was proofed by 4 people and the typo got by all of them.
The company is under contract with the City of South Bend thru the the redevelopment commission to do work that promotes the city.
As I was waiting to take an exam, I walked around the “Discovery School” and saw some posters. It all seemed so innocent until I realized their URL didn’t look right. It could have been done on purpose, but I wanted to snap some pictures and make sure. Once I got home, I checked out their URL and was sent to a parked domain page. Once I entered what SHOULD be the correct URL, I was correctly sent to their website.
