Some forms of Internet advertising are really pissing me off. One: animations that include sounds. Some creators purposefully fail to include the mute button on the applications that run over and over, so if you want to read a news article, which takes some time, you have to mute the entire computer, which is uncomfortable if you have ICQ, or Skype.
And then there are these you-win flashy things that are trying to convince you that out of the whole world visiting this particular site, you were 999,999th. Not one-millionth, but 999,999th. A certain website has been telling me the good news over the last ten days, even though I have been viewing it from three different computers, so that can not be a cookie-related issue.
I think the advertising creator who came up with this lame attempt should have his brain [or what is left of it] examined. But then again, I bet his philosophy is “if I convince at least 1 percent of viewers to click, it is a success”. Well, I don’t think so. As you can see the “you-win” message is in Czech but the site is completely in English.
