The White House has spoken. And Weatherproof is listening... sort of.

A controversial and unauthorized ad featuring President Obama in a Weatherproof brand jacket will be taken down -- in two weeks. That's about how long it will take for Weatherproof to come up with another ad campaign, the Associated Press reports.

Freddie Stollmack, president of Weatherproof, told the source, "he'd heard from the White House and decided to cooperate with its request to halt the ad campaign.

But he says it will take some time. He aims to remove the Times Square billboard and another one on the Long Island Expressway by January 22, after figuring out a new ad campaign," reports the AP.

It sounds like Weatherproof got exactly what it wanted -- publicity!
