Well, maybe if advertising blimps become too expensive to operate, some other means of aerial advertising might work.
Towing a banner behind a plane might not be so bad.

Which reminds me: One time some years ago I was at a beach, and there was a Northwest post-frontal breeze blowing along at a pretty good clip. This wind was parallel to the beach, and someone flying a Cub type plane was pulling a banner into the wind, and had maybe only a 20kt groundspeed. I got to thinking a guy could have used a boat to pull a large kite with a banner behind it.
I admit to not looking into it further though.
