'Forehead Guy' Is Ready To Wear Ads Again

Andrew Fischer, who's already earned more than $50,000 for wearing ads on his forehead, said he's ready to wear another as a temporary tattoo for 30 days.

The young man who claimed to earn $50,000 a year ago for wearing ads on his forehead plans to launch on EBay Inc. Tuesday an auction for the same service this year.

Andrew Fischer, known as the "Forehead Guy," said he would wear a corporate ad as a temporary forehead tattoo for 30 days. The 21-year-old from Omaha, Neb., said he earned more than $50,000 last January from advertisers, which included GoldenPalace.com, a Canadian gambling Web site.

Fischer is not the only person to offer a part of his body as human ad space, but he was one of the first, garnering media attention that included appearances on CBS's "Inside Edition," ABC's "Good Morning America" and Fox News Channel's morning show "Fox & Friends."

Fischer said in a statement released Monday that he would launch his forehead auction Tuesday on EBay with a starting bid of one cent. Fischer's Web site is called Human Ad Space.
