You Don't Know What You've Got 'Till It's Gone

Remember all the creepy Dancing Banners for Lowermybills.com? They were pretty awesome in hindsight. Jennifer Uhll, creator of the ads, stopped by Where's My Jetpack not long ago to defend her work. She was very nice in the face of people commenting not only that they hated her and her 80s big hair, but that she should burn in Hell for what she did for banner ads.

I miss Jennifer's work now, because here's the latest from Lower My Bills, found at the New York Post. A tarantula climbs a woman's breast in this animation. When it reaches her shoulder, she convulses in cartoonish horror. Wow. Where do I sign the loan papers?

Yes, it caught my eye. But really, is that all that matters?

Probably. Sometime soon we'll be hearing about how this was LowerMyBills 2nd most successful banner campaign, right behind "Dancing Rooftop Couple."

  • I love that friggin movie and that was one the the three best scenes. The other two would be the bike chase scene at the end and the intro. Everything in between from Satan tearing up the bike to the Town Meeting rules as well. Then again, how can a movie starting off with a bowl of Mr. T's cereal not rule.

    About Jenn, well if the client approves, likes, and she gets paid.... where's the crime? So they suck... when doesn't something client driven and lauded not suck? A minority of times. So kudos to Jenn for her big her, her big banners and her big ummm smile?

  • BTW the new ad looks Like Lara Croft got a makeover, some Collagen shots in the lips and it all went horrendously wrong once the stitches popped.
