If you’ve ever envisioned yourself simultaneously getting bailed of out of jail and cheering for your favorite college football team, then we’ve got the perfect advertisement for you. Down in Knoxville, a AAA Bail Bonding company has put up a billboard on I-40 West that shows a prisoner, hooked to a ball and chain, along with the phrase “Go Vols!” It’s a strange way to latch onto the popularity of Tennessee football.
Mark Nagi, the Community Relations Manager for the TDOT, posted the photo Friday morning.
For everyone asking… Yes, this is real, and it’s spectacular. On I-40 West near Downtown Knoxville. pic.twitter.com/JRlWXN2gxM

So what happens if you’re booked and don’t root for the Vols? We don’t want to know.
