Freeway drivers in Las Vegas were startled this morning to see a suited-up mannequin dangling from a billboard that read "Dying For Work."

Calls started coming into the Nevada Highway Patrol early this morning from drivers on the 15 Freeway who were afraid that the dummy was a real person, according to the Associated Press.

Lamar Advertising Co., the owner of the billboard, said it was a publicity stunt and they were working to take it down. Authorities aren't sure who did it, but there was a report of another billboard dummy in Las Vegas with the text: "Hope You're Happy Wall St."
