C.R.A.P.A.D.S. Says Rich Media Can Kill You
Remember back in the day when the click was king and animated banners were all the rage? Back when Geocities sites ruled? Yea, they were quaint times. Thankfully, we've come a long way since then. Well, some of us have. Not the Council of Responsible Advertisers Promoting Accepted Digital Solutions or C.R.A.P.A.D.S. No. C.R.A.P.A.D.S. thinks it's still all about the click and all this rich media stuff is, well, crap. After all, who wants bloated images floating across the screen?
C.R.A.P.A.D.S. wants us to appreciate the "beauty and effectiveness of traditional ad banners. Company Chairman Charles Letchwell says they're reliable and "better suited for real internet people."
C.R.A.P.A.D.S. Creative Director Eldred Tosveck says rich media is "gratuitous and obscene" and "only 98 percent of the web browsers are enable with The Flash. Who's looking out for the other two?"
You'll be surprised when the responsible party behind this campaign is outed. We know who it is but we're not saying. After all, that would take the fun out of the hunt, right?
And now...FULL DISCLOSURE: This company advertises on Adrants. And they pay us money to do so. OK? We good?
Now come on, who can be the first to name the company?
