An Explosion of Ugly Online Ads

 It was a pretty sparse blog in June, but here comes July with an explosion. An explosion of Ugly Online Ads!

Our first specimen today is the return of the Obamavertment. Since the guy who has name like his was killed the Prez's credibility for ads has risen. Of cource I am not sure this one has a hidden political statement in it. The man looks rather disinterested in the reduction that the President supposedly has made. His response sort of sounds like "Meh. More reductions. What's new?"
Mr. Disinterest is pretty well dressed for one of these ads. I would suspect he may have been a college administrator in another life.
Next in line is Mudman. Scary new ad hero. Watch out during campaign season, this guy will be throwing himself around freely.
And speaking of super heroes, looks as if somebody wants to give Mrs. President a cut of the online ad biz with this resemblance. I have seen Mr. Obama as a super hero but his spouse is rarely depicted. Anyways, she looks like a smart super hero since she reads books, wears a mortarboard, wears glasses, and a magic amulet. She is sure to outwit the villains or perhaps someone looking for money to go to school in Minnesota. If only she had scissor to cut the big increases in tuition that are being  predicted in Minnesota. I wonder if there will ever be a college crash- i.e. the value of an education at a particular college goes so out of proportion that it prices itself out of existence.
Nothing like a little Americana mixed with an old guy to get you clicking through. I almost thought the ad was for "Free Feral Tax Filing"- the tax upon those living wildly outside of town.
Anti-wrinkle cream ad are prime  opportunities to employ our senior citizens. Here this women looks like she need more than the anti-wrinkle discovery. She need a few cups of black coffee at  least.


These are awful. I just saw it last week. The babies look rather creepy, especially that one on the bottom with the square head. Needless to say, your future baby will always look ugly with this app.













Finally, this has got to be the ugliest use of a female I have seen thus far. I am not sure what they were aiming for with the model. It looks like a bad make-up year or perhaps an outcast from Braveheart. She looks a little bit uncivilized but the 80s big earring does her in. This is another Obamavertment where is suggests our President will lower your mortgage. The lady is probably yelling in victory after stalking her evening prey.
"I have food and now my house payments will get smaller. Yabba dabba!"
