i'm loving this ad i saw a few minutes ago when i wasn't logged in


maybe missing the demographic on that one... i'm also at the end of a bowl of my first smoke on FVF, so not much can bother me right now!

Yeah, the analytics failed a bit there.

I've often fantasised about tracking down the physical headquarters of those kind of organisations so I can go and smoke a large pipe outside their door and see how many pop an aneurysm in outrage.

Then again, the other morning I had to log back in, and there was a tempting spread of synthesizers for me. Go figure. Laughing

Cool

With FireFox you can use adblock, I don't see any of the ad's here, or anywhere for that matter. Wink

yes but Reddit thanks me for not doing that, and i'm almost strictly using chrome these days. it's just awfully poor placement. the company i work for uses analytics for ad placement. i wonder what people are seeing our bicycles show up on?

You do realize they didn't miss the intended target at all?

In their minds its the same as putting AA ads on alcohol vendors sites.

AND they have been writing those catchy little jingles on cig packs for decades. That's the analog equivalent of this ad.
