Inside of Hotty Toddy Potties to feature advertising for first time this football season
Published: August 14,2011
If such a thing as a captive advertising audience ever existed, one could be found in the Grove on football gamedays.
So it’s no surprise that Ole Miss officials have spent untold amounts of money and energy keeping the popular tailgating spot free of advertisers and solicitors “to keep it from becoming the Canton Flea Market,” said Andy Mullins, chief of staff to Chancellor Dan Jones and chairman of the Gameday Committee.
Those reins will be loosened this upcoming football season, but not by much: The university has contracted with a local start-up to install advertising on the interior of the portable restrooms that have become Grove staples since they first arrived about a decade ago. The Hotty Toddy Potties, like every other part of the Grove, had been completely off-limits to any form of political or business advertising or solicitation. Their outsides still are; only the inside will be adorned with advertisements.
