The travelling sign

I took this picture mostly because I´ve never seen one of these sings up close. Solo empanadas is an empanada-delivery place (being empanadas a tipical food here in argentina: pastries filled with meat (most classics ones) or ham&cheese or empanadas gallegas (from spain) with tuna). I guess they´re opening another shop. They have the most crazy advertising campaigns: dancing empanadas. Whenever the traffic lights show red a crew of empandas start dancing in front of your car. The people inside those coustumes must suffer a lot, because there are, I dare to say, no ventilation holes in their empanada suit.
If I ever get the chance I´ll post a picture of them.

I have never had a Solo Empanada during my stays in BA, are they good? This photo looks like it was taken in the provincials (suburbs). The street looks too smooth and wide to be metro BA.

Oh, that's quite handy. You can keep drivinh through the city doing advertisment for your shop/store/restaurant etc. and a lot of people will see it. Unless there's more of them of course, then it'll get annoying...

No, this is actually a street from buenos aires city...it´s avenida córdoba up north (avenida córdoba starts at the rio de la plata , crosses 9 de julio and goes north) and empanadas: they are terrific, i love them. They´re best enjoyed with friends!
Nicola: no this is pretty unusual and it´s quite strange to see such advertisement dancing/ travelling through the streets. Yes you´re right it would be boring :)
