Whether you’re driving along Sunset Blvd or walking around Times Square, you’ve most likely noticed the billboards for CW’s Vampire Diaries broadcasting the message ” Catch VD.” Ahh, CW, the perennially also-ran network is trying a little wordplay. Clever.
This isn’t the first time The CW has “pushed the envelope.” You may recall the puritans at the Parents Television Council were jumping all over the network’s “OMFG” ads for Gossip Girl.
When approached for a comment, a CW spokesperson released this statement: “VD simply stands for Vampire Diaries, and anyone who thinks otherwise should probably get themselves checked out.”
It’s only a play on words; any copywriter should appreciate that fact. The slogan does exactly what a good line should, draw attention! We say well done and applaud CW for having a pair. Check out the Times Square billboard after the jump.
"It's like a song. Now, I can hold a note for a long time. - Actually, I can hold a note forever. - But eventually, that's just noise. It's the change we're listening for. The note coming after and the one after that. That's what makes it music."

I read all the books of Vampire Diaries that are out and I have to say
Show >>> Books
It's partly because the books were written in the early 1990's and then when the two recent one's came out in 2009 they were mixed with modern times and those from the early 1990's and it got on my nerves... I'm still buying the last book of The Return series in March
