Sumo Wrestlers Invite MySpacers to Check Credit Scores


Hey look, another ad whose imagery has nothing at all to do with what it's promoting. No wonder people hate us.

Credit scores, degrees, mortgages... it's like, "Let's take some really important stuff and try to promote it as inanely as possible!"

This cheap tomfoolery fills us with venom. The unfortunate paradox is, the ads do jump out. So we guess it's all in keeping with whether or not you believe all advertising is good advertising if it resonates -- however badly.

This kind of stuff will only accelerate the adoption of AdBlocking technology.

The only reason I don't have it running on my PC at work is that I sometimes need to see ads.

Those dancing geckos really piss me off.

But that's just the point Angela. The purpose of advertising doesn't always have to be to get us non-thinking, non-industry troll types to remember the ad because of it's quality in relation to what is being sold. The purpose is to get us to remember the ad. We will think about those little wrestlers when we want to check our credit scores. least some of us will. The rest will be wondering, umm.....what's a credit score? Is it a sumo-wrestler's weight?
