Curse of the Ugly Online Ad
But let's dig into our set for today. The one on our left I call "surprised by the mortgage." It is an animated one but I captured the terror of model at the height of mortgage discover. Quite a few online ads are using the animation/vid style but mostly the rocking head guys or the gal running. But this one rocks. After a few cycles through, you too could be haunted by low mortgage rates.
Here the fellow was duped into thinking this was him in cartoon form. Well they got the mouth right, but that's about it. He nearly looks like a she except for the ant and coffee grounds beard they give him and the slivery eyes. I would guess in the a full length cartoon this guy just got ants and coffee grounds thrown at him. Also I could very easily adapt the cartoon so that he would be able join the cast of Marc Brown's Arthur. I hope this guy didn't pay an arm and a leg for this.
This is possibly the most scary ad I've seen since the dumb teeth guy.
I can hardly stand to look at this freaky thing. Is it staged? Is this for real? Is this from an episode of Star Trek?
