A New Jersey judge has recommended that a casino billboard for the Moonshine Follies Cabaret Show should stay after receiving a number of complaints about the nearly naked showgirl’s backside that forms a large part of the board.
The strange thing is that the judge who made this ruling, Superior Court Judge Nelson Johnson, also happens to the writer of the book that has inspired the board, Boardwalk Empire. The adapted HBO television show has experienced considerable popularity and the advertisers behind the billboard were hoping to cash in on the new wave of Atlantic City enthusiasm by creating an advert that uses the 1920’s theme with which Boardwalk Empire is set in.
The board is 60 feet wide and was put up on February 1. The show which it advertises is set in the Jazz Age and can be found at the Resorts Casino Hotel.
Johnson has even gone as far as ordering NJ Transit, the standards agency, that they are not to touch the board until a hearing is had on March 10.
