Why else would the city of Dallas have partnered with Clear Channel Outdoor advertising to create a series of billboards urging guys to pull up their jeans?
The campaign, which was announced at Dallas city hall this week, is starting with 17 anti-sagging billboards.

I'm not quite sure they succeed. Will kids really be swayed by slogans like, "Don't Be Lame, Elevate Your Game. Pullem' Up!" and "That's Not Hip-Hop, That's Flip Flop"?
And, really, what's the city's problem with this, exactly? Who's this hurting again?
