Who else here is absolutely annoyed and disgusted with these stupid Acai Berry ads?
If you don't know what I'm talking about, just open up some random website, or heck, even MSN Messenger, and see the "1 Flat Stomach Rule: Obey" ads and similar.
1. They like to put disgusting, distorted blobs of fat on the ads; one even made the fat jiggle!
2. They are all scams. This is nothing new, but it adds up.
3. They lead to fake "blogs". These stupid blogs are made to look like it wasn't an overpaid marketing executive who made them.
4. They are low quality. Again, nothing new, but ew.
5. They currently are spamming e-mail boxes worse than other pharmaceutical brands, which is silly considering there's no reason they should have to invest in spam.
6. The gif looped ads are made in a distracting, half-complete manner, so it draws your attention, and then loops over only the middle part, making obsessive-compulsives like myself want to rip their eyes out.
And the worse part....
7. They bought the advertising space of the entire freaking internet! Annoying scamming ad agencies are one thing when they show a little variety in their ad campaigns, but when the same stupid, disgusting ads are shown on every website (I can't even comprehend how many websites have this crap on it), all day long, every day, and then on MSN and other IMs, they've crossed the line. I seriously just want to see their buildings get pulverized with everybody inside.
I don't think any other ad campaign on the internet, ever, no matter how shady, has infuriated me as much as these ads.
Somebody needs to take them to court and slap an anti-trust lawsuit against them. Nobody can compete with them and they've abused their power far too long.
