“Catching My Lying Husband? Priceless”: Betrayed Wife Uses MasterCard Ad Parody As Payback!

A woman from Greensboro, North Carolina whose husband had been having an affair got her revenge by using the theme of the infamous “Priceless” MasterCard adverts and publically shaming him.

Emblazoned on a giant billboard on Battleground Avenue (a rather aptly named road for this sort of sign), the MasterCard parody advert reads:

“Michael – GPS Tracker – $250, Nikon Camera with zoom lens – $1600, Catching my LYING HUSBAND and buying this billboard with our investment account – Priceless. Tell Jessica you’re moving in! -Jennifer.”

Carrying details of the gadgets “Jennifer” purchased to investigate husband “Michael” and discover his infidelity, the eye-catching billboard certainly got noticed, causing quite a stir and even slowing down the traffic!

Some passersby even stopped to applaud the sign, expressing their support and admiration. One fan told Fox News, “I love that woman. Good for her!’ and another said; “I wish I had done that in an earlier relationship!”

But not everyone believes that Jennifer was scorned by an unfaithful husband, as some have speculated that the people don’t actually exist and the whole thing is just a clever marketing ploy from MasterCard.

It wouldn’t be the first time that a company has adopted the infidelity of husbands in a bid to lure the public’s attention and it probably won’t be the last either. The Daily Mail points out that back in 2006, CourtTV used a similar advertising ploy to market their series Parco P.I. Their billboards read; “Hi Steven. Do I have your attention now? I know all about her, you dirty, sneaky, immoral, unfaithful, poorly-endowed slimeball. Everything’s caught on tape. Your (soon-to-be-ex) Wife, Emily.”

These billboards appeared all over the U.S. and eventually it became clear that they were not from a scorned wife but rather an advertising campaign for a new season of the reality series.

So far though, the Greensboro billboard appears to be a one-off which suggests it might actually be from a woman who did catch her husband cheating and decided that this was the best way to exact vengeance!

Apparently the billboard has only recently been built and the company that owns it – Outdoor Signage has not yet commented on the controversial nature of its content. “Jennifer” or MasterCard have yet to come forward and claim responsibility for the sign.
