Half my advertising budget is wasted...on one billboard

You know those amazing billboards with moving parts and 3D effects and breaking the 4th wall and so on?
Where the hell are they?

All the billboards I can recall seeing have been of the plain old paper-on-flat-surface kind. I suppose I've just never been to where different billboards are sited, but I want to know if there are specific places where they occur and why.
Are there only a handful of sites worth the extra cost? If so, where?
Do local laws restrict these billboards to only certain countries?
How common are they anyway? Are they one-offs for the attention they bring?
I don't mean any specific advertisement, just those kind of innovative advertisements which break from the norm. I suppose I would like some more information on the phenomenon, if possible.
