Badvertising

The first online banner ads I saw were on Prodigy, and I'd like to think those ads were lousy because online advertising was so new, and technology was limited. Prodigy looks pretty raw after 15+ years, but how I wish someone had warned us of the horrors of Macromedia Flash! Manipulating graphics is child's play. Photoshop has gone the way of the Thermos and other genericized brand names. Do they still use airbrushing anymore?
I recently came across an ad, probably on Myspace.com, that buries those sexed-up boob-fest ads. You can view it here. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
