Everywhere I look, I see this muscle bound freak:
And it's really starting to annoy the hell out of me. It's been showing up in Yahoo mail, and in blog entries on Google reader. It's definitely effective in combating banner blindness. Normally I don't notice ads. Even the flashy dancing santa ads. In fact, especially not those. I've trained myself. But something about this one makes it impossible to ignore. Could be the freakish quality of the obviously photoshopped dude in the photos, or the fact that he shows up everywhere I look. I don't know what I've done to be targeted by this campaign. I haven't searched for or written about any health related stuff, except trying to find a good dentist in NYC. Could be that it's January, and this company has made a huge ad buy trying to get as much of that juicy New Years resolution green as they possibly can before we're all ready to go back to our bacon and TV watching. Whatever. I don't care. I've had enough of this guy. I don't have any interest in the product. If anything this campaign is having the exact opposite effect. I am starting to hate this product. Starting? No. I HATE it. And I'm starting to hate Google, and Yahoo too.
Uncle. Please stop showing me these ads. Please. I'm begging you.
Or perhaps this is a clever ploy to break me of my internet addiction?
