Attention-getting Hustle of ‘Sign Guy’ Wins Him Fans – and Pizza Customers

According to a news report from, “In the world of minimum-wage workers who stand on corners shaking signs, some have polka-dot clown costumes, and others have biceps that can support a cardboard sign for hours.”

Chris Williamson has something more: fans,” said the story. “The techno- and hip-hopdancing sign guy chugs through four hours of spins, pops, bounces and tricks outside the Little Caesars on E. Main Street in Reynoldsburg five days a week, holding a “$5 pizza” sign. People wave, honk horns and hold cameras out their windows. In one case, Williamson said, two distracted drivers wound up in a fender-bender.”
