Million Dollar Pixel Page Uses Lure of Super Bowl to Bilk Advertisers


With four days to go before Sunday's Super Bowl, this million dollar homepage idea has to be the dumbest one yet. The page, called Be in A Super Bowl Ad, promises to show six pages of its site for five seconds each during a :30 in the game. That is unless, according to this not insignificant disclaimer on the site, "Because advertisement space for the Big Game is extremely expensive there is a possibility that the football ad can't be purchased. There will be no refunds and the standard advertising terms and conditions will be in effect," things don't work out in the next few days. Can you say scam?

While the review is completely incorrect, it is not necessarily unjustified. It seems that I wasn't completely clear about the football ad. I NEVER had an intention to try an put it in the game this week, there was simply not enough time for people to sign up or even get the ad. This is a long term operation, since the ads will be up for at least 4 more years, with a game happening every year during those 4, there will be chances to get an ad another year. Even if there is still not enough support after those 4 years I will attempt to extend it in hopes that some future yea r there will be enough support. Please contact me if there are any questions or concerns.
