Two digital billboard ads in Wilmington, North Carolina, have attracted a lot of attention recently as they seemed to take a dig at President Joe Biden amid the Afghanistan fallout. In the past few days, Biden has faced a lot of flak for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, and the following Taliban takeover of the country.

Two pictures of the commander-in-chief were placed on the electronic roadside display. One showed him enjoying an ice cream in a waffle cone while a military helicopter can be seen in the background leaving the US Embassy in Kabul. The second photo showed him peeking out from between window blinds.

The billboard near the busy Market Street and Eastwood Road intersection in Wilmington quickly went viral on the internet. Initially, people were not sure if someone had hacked the billboard to place Biden’s pictures into the rotation on it or someone actually bought the spots. However, eventually, a person named Donald Tedder cleared on Twitter that he is the owner of the billboard. He also stated, “This was not a ‘hacked billboard’ it was a paid Ad for someone who put their money where their mind is. I know because I own the billboard. Glad you all are enjoying.”

Tedder also told The New York Post that the anonymous buyer was not happy with the current situation in Afghanistan. They were also disappointed by Biden’s administration. “They were disappointed by what has been happening,” the owner said, before adding that the buyer first thought of writing a letter to a newspaper, but then realized that pictures on a billboard will be more effective. “I think it worked better than we expected it to,” Tedder added.

The billboard’s owner also told The NY Post that the photos are “not too offensive” and “funny”, but clearly points out that “the country needs to pay attention to what [the government] is doing”. Tedder said that he hopes people seeing the artwork on the billboard “start questioning what the country is doing and what they themselves are doing to make this country a better place”.

Meanwhile, people on Twitter also took note of the displays and shared their views. A user tweeted, “Those guys are cool. Whoever did that rock on.” The second one wrote, “Good, he deserves every bit of truth thrown his way, although he probably won't get it.” “Be even better if it was Pelosi handing him some of the ice cream she keeps in her freezer!!!” the third one joked.

A person excitedly said, “Omg I am running up there tomorrow and hope they are still there!!! they must be the ones that run along the 95.” Another one suggested, “They should have put a duck in his hand.” “Anyone not blaming Biden on this incompetent disaster withdrawal crisis is more Dem than American. He destroyed the trust of our allies in 1 week and never had plan for in case. No one can trust Bidens judgement on anything foreign affairs going forward. He’s failed miserably,” a tweet added.
