'Twilight'-themed signs popping up to encourage road safety

Robert Thomas Pattinson - The actor - The musician facebook reports:

"Add this one to the who'da-thunk-it pile. According toThe Portland Mercury's Blogtown, Oregon road safety signs have now adopted a Twilight theme to encourage drivers and passengers to buckle up.

The one captured in this photo from the site states "You are not immortal. Buckle up" with lettering, imagery, and coloring resemblant of the Saga.

Now, it's not surprising at all to have heard thatWuthering Heights, Romeo and Juliet, and other works of literature got a Twilight-themed cover to correlate with their references in the series, or that this weekend's Stephenie Meyer Day celebration in Forks, Washington kicked off with some Twilight postage stamps, or even that some of this year's Fashion Week designer showcases were inspired by Twilight . . . but road signs? Now that's clever.

According to Blogtown, "Apparently these have been around SE Portland since the spring."

Portland was the filming location for 2008's Twilight, so it serves as an iconic location for theTwilight Saga - particularly since it's in the Olympic Peninsula which is the rainy setting for most of the Saga.

What do you think of the sign idea? Effective? Why or why not?"
