Loser keeps Bieber: Hilarious billboard updated after shaming US loss to Canada

See also

The “Loser keeps Bieber.” That’s what the ignominious second place prize would be, suggested an electronic billboard out of Illinois. Of course, the goofy signage is referring to the pop icon Justin Bieber and his inane behavior that has him equal parts loved and loathed across at least two countries.

According to CBS News on Friday, the freight broker company Command Transportation posted the jokey billboard on the outside of its headquarters in Skokie, Ill., wagering that the “losing nation of Monday's Winter Olympics semi-finals hockey game between the U.S. and Canada had to take custody of the troubled pop star.”

The electronic advertisement, which went up along Edens Expressway in Chicago, shows the singer flanked by Team USA's Patrick Kane and Team Canada's Jonathan Toews with a caption that reads: “Loser Keep Bieber.”

Of course, the U.S. lost 1 – 0 to Canada, evidently making the 20-year-old pop musician ours for all time.

The sign has since changed, and now shows a reticent reply from the U.S., humbly acknowledging the loss and the fact we must embrace the teeny bopper musician and his annoying ways.

A bald eagle now looks out with a giant gold “Belieber” necklace, next to the words “Worst Bet Ever.”

Even Barack Obama and Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper got in on the smack talk surrounding the game, though neither of the country’s leaders said anything yet about Bieber and his Visa.

@pmharper and I bet on the women's and men's US-Canada hockey games. Winner gets a case of beer for each game. #GoTeamUSA! –bo – @WhiteHouse Feb. 20 10:00 am

I'm betting @barackobama one case of Canadian beer per hockey game this week. #teamusa is good, but #WeAreWinter. #GoCanadaGo @WhiteHouse@pmharper Feb. 20 10:07 am

After the Canadian victory, Harper tweeted:

Like I said, #teamusa is good but #wearewinter. @BarackObama, I look forward to my two cases of beer. #CANvsUSA #Sochi2014@pmharper Feb. 21 2:24 pm

Command Transportation wants a rematch, tweeting:

Hey Canada, best 2 out of 3… errr… best 3 out of 5? – @CommandSign Feb. 21 3:20 pm

When the “Biebs” isn’t getting slobbering attention from preteens, he’s getting a proposed kick in the rear – right out of the country.

In January, a WhiteHouse.gov petition to deport the Canadian-born singer reached its goal of 100,000 signatures, meaning that the Obama administration has to render an official response.

The petition reads:

"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."

Are you a Belieber? This fool spent $97K on surgery to look like Justin Bieber
