Thanks to Love for arousing me with this gem of a banner ad, found on the blog of Mr John Goddard. I share their feelings about these. And in the much-twittered words of Matthew Robson (aged 15 years and seven months) banner ads are “extremely annoying and pointless”

This banner ad is by no means annoying. And a quick straw poll in the agency shows average stare-time of 2 minutes. Impressive. And I stayed clicking it for ages. And I mean ages. In case you want to know who makes such effective cyber marketing, it was created by Bridge Worldwide and got a Cyber Gold at Cannes this year! Now how many banner ads can claim that?

Go on. Click it. I DARE you…
