I’m not sure what will.
Look, I’ll be the first one in line to burn advertisers at the stake. Ads are intrusive, annoying, almost never advertising anything I’d even be remote interested in, and if I wanted to know about your type of product, I’d come looking for it.
Add to that the hideous aesthetics and utter lack of creativity and originality of the vast majority of ads, and marketing folks and I will just not see eye to eye. Spam does not improve my opinion of advertising, and repeated, insistent, unethical attempts to force ads and software onto my hard drive are legitimate grounds for a death-penalty conviction in my book.
But every now and again someone puts a little effort into an ad. They get creative, smart, funny, sexy, or some combination thereof that at least entertains me.
Below the fold resides one such ad.
