Online Ads that Missed Their Mark

The internet is a scary place where your browser uses delicious desserts to tell large companies where to find you so they can extract money straight from your veins. Online ads are strange things that people complain about, at yet they let us have free games like that one where you put down toys and cats show up. These are important games, and it’s important that they stay free.

So I’ll put up with the ads, even though they can get pretty creepy.

We thought you’d like this t-shirt! “I’m a [province I lived in 15 years ago] living in a [city I live in now even though I don’t show it on my Facebook] world!

Yikes.

Other times, they haven’t got a friggin’ clue.

I’m not interested in miracle weight cures. I’m not interested in avoiding wrinkles. I’m going to earn every one of those bad boys.

Hi Holly! We noticed that you purchased cream for your bizarre rash eight years ago and that you recently purchased a DVD about frogs, we would now like to suggest that you purchase this documentary about the religious significance of cheese wheels.

I was trying to forget about that rash, thank you very much, nor am I interested in cheese, so –

    Weight loss ads, I think, are the most popular ways to nab folks. At least, they are for book sales during the new year 😉 I use ad block as much as I can b/c I find ads so annoying, like everyone else!

        Of course it worked! It was an online ad. However, it was a pill, so my tongue and stomach also grew 3 inches. A SEXY three inches.
