The Alien Billboard is a treasure found in the game Pikmin 2 and is actually a Kiwi brand shoe polish lid. In the North American and Japanese versions of the game, it is found on the first sublevel of the White Flower Garden. There are a few pests such as Sheargrubs that may be a problem if they're not taken care of.

On it, it reads:

KIWI

SINCE 1906

SHOE POLISH

"Shines, Nourishes, & Protects"

CORDOVAN

NET WT. 1 1/8 OZ. (31 g)

"Cordovan" is also labeled across the outer edge of the lid.

On the European version of the game, this treasure is inside one of the Orange Bulborbs in sublevel 13 of the Dream Den.

Notes

Olimar's journal

There are several different patterns drawn on this object's surface. They appear to be characters or letters, but I can't make any sense of them. This is just an educated guess, but I wonder if this object is a kind of alien bulletin board? The size of the object seems about right for it.

Sales pitch

Perhaps this is some ancient billboard...but perhaps not. Its authenticity may be in question, but if you can use it for inspiration, you may become a topflight ad executive.
