F*** "Grind" Pop-up Ad(11 posts)

F*** "Grind" Pop-up Adblownpupil

Does this pop-up ad p+++ you off as much as me? It floats all over the place. Most intrusive and irritating. What is this, some new movie or something?

Even worse than Classmates.com which only shows mutants and freaks from high school.
yeah...real effective isn't it?ColnagoFE

One day these advertisers are gonna realize that intrusive stuff like this doesn't sell product. It just annoys.

The f%#king thing is immune to pop-up blockers, too. Makes me REALLY want to see the movie-NOT!
Only thing worse than a pop-up ad is a pop-up w/AUDIO - nmmdehner

Welcome to rich media. Designed for maximum attention (annoyance?). As a marketing mgr myself, I hate what some of the people in my line of work are doing. It's making junk mail and telemarketing look good in comparison to the intrisiveness of rich media ads.
Blaming the wrong people.Spoiler

Bottom line is that RBR accepted the ad and the money. They decided it was worth the annoyance to us. Apparently, they have absolutely no other way to generate revenue.
Love to see how fast I can knock it off the screen..nm.Lone Gunman
