People are allowed to decorate their vehicles however they like, but in the case of one Waco, Texas, citizen, there's some debate about whether his taste in decor may have went too far.
Brad Cobb's flatbed truck boasts a life-size decal of a woman that appears to be bound and lying prone on the floor of the truck. HLN affiliate KWTX reports that the sticker was created by a business called Hornet Signs, which sells a variety of similar designs to decorate the doors of flatbed trucks.
"It was just something that we had to put out there, you know, to see if anyone notices it," said owner Brad Cobb. "It was an experiment for us, and I was surprised at how much traffic it did drive."
Social media response to the decal has been mixed, with some saying they felt it was not right to portray a woman that appeared to be tied up.
"Abduction or any violence against women is not funny or cute," said a commenter on KWTX's Facebook page.
Others, however, didn't see the problem with the decal.
"This American business owner has a decal that made the news. Like it or not, it works," said another commenter on the station's page.
Hornet Signs has seen an influx in orders ever since the bound woman decal made the news.
