Dancing Silhouette people

Some mortgage place has them. On seriously annoying animated banner ads. DeadEye used to use one for an avatar on the message boards. Now MickeyD’s has them on their burrito stickers. Another stupid banner ad for a Singles Service . They’re all over the net, on billboards – and now on my freaking BREAKFAST.

What is with these anorexic silhouette dancing people? Why all the silhouettes? Why no features? Whatever ad agency thought this one up needs to be deported. Rubbish. Utter Rubbish.

I guess I haven't noticed them.


Isn't that some kind of restaurant chain? Seems like I've heard of it.

Hey, have a nice day ignoring the dancing thingies.

Find a hot tub to soak in for a while.

Yeah, just ignore the whole frigging world.

Hugs and all that crap. :-)

Apple started it, and most advertisers figure, "What's good for selling iPods must be good for selling mortgages, debt relief, viagra...whatever".

I have to admit, I have never seen one, but I will be on the lookout and snub it the minute I spot it.

"stupid banner ad for a Singles Service"

Umm, do you actually visit those sites?

If so......

*rolls eyes*

BBC, you DO realize that banner ads appear on sites unrelated to the material in the ad, right?

Like - when I go to a site for information on insurance, I may well also get banner ads for power tools?
