Lower My Blood Pressure

I was all set to congratulate LowerMyBills.com for going with a more tasteful Flash banner, this fairly innocuous sand-raking scene found at msnbc.com, (that sure beats the crap out of dancing gay cowboys) when I discovered in my toolbar a sneaky pop-under ad I got served on an earlier visit to The Washington Post.

You cannot escape these people.










And have you noticed, The Washington Post (dot com) is like that stretch of highway in some desperate part of the country where they said, "The more outdoor advertising, the better!"? (Think Highway 65, between Springfield, Missouri and Branson.)

  • AC of KC:

    The money is apparently huge - and apparently working.

    From what I've heard, it's one of the most successful banner campaigns ever.

    Goes to show: Bombard them with shit day in and day out - they will succumb. Frequency Rules, no matter the message.

    Proving that the populace is, as we suspected, basically stupid.
