Ads for topless maid services, massages rub California residents the wrong way

Pink vans emblazoned with "Topless Maids" and the phone number 818-666-HUGE are generating complaints from Burbank residents and businesses who don't want the mobile billboards parked near their homes and stores.

“It doesn’t project the image of the city that we think we have,” said Joy Forbes, Burbank’s assistant city manager, who has been fielding complaints. “We have a small-town feel. These types of advertising vehicles don’t reflect the image of Burbank that most people have.”

Forbes said that since neighboring Los Angeles recently enacted city rules that barred mobile advertising, Burbank has seen an influx of ad vans, which park for days on end and advertise 1-hour massages and topless maid services.

The service does not have a permit to operate within the city of Burbank, Forbes said. Burbank city officials don’t know if the vans are representing a legitimate business in another city. Calls to the number advertised on the van on Thursday went to voicemail, which was full.

A DMV search of the van's license plate showed that it had once been owned by a gardening service, but was transferred to an individual in July.

NBC4 tracked down the vans and several other mobile advertisements to the parking lot of a Studio City massage and manicure studio, located across the street from a dance studio.

Owner Sami Ammari said he owns several businesses and employs hundreds of people. He said he's helping the economy and can't understand the negative reaction.

"I’m not advertising anything, it’s for transportation purposes in Burbank," Ammari told NBC4 over the phone.

He went on to say that because the ads are printed onto his vehicles, he's not violating the ordinance. However, the bright pink van advertising topless maids does have an attached sign.

Burbank is writing rules they hope will allow officials to effectively regulate mobile billboards, and the City Council could take up the issue before the end of the year. In the meantime, to combat the problem, the city has been enforcing a city municipal code that bars vehicles from parking on streets for more than 72 hours.

On Wednesday morning, a topless maid services van was issued a 72-hour warning note when it was seen by a city ombudsman parked on West Riverside Drive and West Olive Avenue.

But for the most part the vans have dodged the effort, vanishing just as they reach the 72-hour limit, Forbes said.“We’ve long have had codes that have limited businesses or trucks,” Forbes said. “We want to see if there’s a possibility of regulating these vehicles."

Forbes said city officials are being cautious in drafting a new ordinance -- trying to strike a balance. They want to impose rules that don't impinge on First Amendment rights. The city currently only has two active licenses for so-called "advertising vehicles" in Burbank, according to a report by the city's Community Development Department presented to the City Council in August.

In March, the city of Los Angeles approved an ordinance that allows the city to regulate the parking of mobile billboard advertising displays, either standing alone or attached to motor vehicles, on public streets.

L.A. officials put the ordinance into effect after they saw a surge in the number of vehicles being used as mobile billboards parked on city streets for days.

“Burbank is a very conservative city,” said Los Angeles Councilman Dennis Zine, who drafted the motion banning mobile billboards there. “I can understand why they’re upset with it.

“L.A. would be more than happy to assist Burbank in adopting an ordinance. We’ve been very aggressive.”

A stream of comments about the van hit Facebook on Thursday.

Freddie Pasch Goldberg said he saw the van in Valley Village.

"I had to stop and make sure what I was reading," he wrote. "Really?? Do we need this?"

Amaya Rivero wrote, "They make the city look ugly!!"

Christi LeAnn Stoll McLellan wrote, "Honestly I don't think it's any worse than anything a child can see on primetime television - or daytime tv for that matter.

"This actually looks like a joke - but who knows nowadays with the economy so bad."

"I'm amused," said Austin Shear, of Valley Village, in an interview with NBC4.

He spotted the van in Burbank this week. "Isn't kinda funny that they use 666 and HUGE? And how do we know it's going to be girls. Maybe it's two dudes who are topless."

What the f##k are they complaining about?

Hedonistic california is the porno capitol of the world...

Is the fact that their children are being sent far from home to be maimed and crippled and killed in oil wars rubbing them the wrong way?

Its not socially acceptable and its not politically correct to stand up and speak out against the back stabbing governments murderous war machine...

And so we live and think and die in denial while demonizing sex instead...

War is evil and pornographic not the body beautiful...

Denial...Thats what it is...Living and dying in almost complete denial...The absolute refusal of most people to face the too horrible to face realities of tptb and their never endingly evil wars and genocides...So we demonize sex instead...Sex...The catch all scapegoat...Sex...The only reason we're here...Sex...As far as I know none of us were immaculately conceived...

Topless maids?!...So f###en what?!

They should have bottomless maids and totally nude (except for high heels) maids as well who go all the way...

Most certainly thats better than going to war!

Being paid and trained to murder each other!

Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex...

Something of real importance for America to be concerned with.


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Just curious - is prostitution illegal in California?

I'm not a prude and personally don't care, but these kind of 'cleaning services' are often a front for other business...

I could care less what kind of front they are,like for sex shows and or prostitution and or making pornos or what ever?!

So f###en what?! who f###en cares?!

What are mutha f###en two faced back stabbing governments a front for?

A front for forcibly sending generation after generation of youth far away from their families and homes to be brutally maimed and viciously crippled and savagely killed in war after war after war thats f###en what!

And a front for financially raping people for more and more tax money along with threats of imprisonment if we dont willingly comply and robotically adhere!

So sex is illegal and war isnt?!

Like omg thats so friggin evil!

Let me tell ya right now,tptb dont really care and they couldnt give a damn less if someone is selling drugs and or selling sex!

But what the greed driven ptb really do give a damn about is someone making money without tptb getting a monetary piece of their action!

And so anything anyone does that involves people making cash without tptb legally extorting some of it is made illegal and punishable!

Money is a tool of control and a weapon of domination and the more money someone has the less they are able to be controlled and dominated and the less money someone has the more they are able to be controlled and dominated!

Seriously think about it,i cant even have a damn yard sale,to try and make myself a little money,without first going to the town hall and paying them some money there and if I had a yard sale without first shelling out some cash to the town and state the cops would arrive and shut down my yard sale and fine me!!!

Over a god damned friggin yard sale!!!

While they're dropping bombs and crushing cities and annihilating the men and women and children living within them!!!
