As you all probably know, in today's society we have a new
epidemic that affects millions of people everyday world wide. Within minutes, sufferers complain of headaches,
spasmodic yelling, and the urge to throw their computer out a twenty story building. That’s right;
I’m talking about the dreaded Pop-Up epidemic. The relentless advertisers insist that we buy their waffle makers, their
“package” enhancers, their satellite with free DVD player, or whatever else they’re selling. But I say nay!
I will not sign up to meet a sexy single in my area! I don’t care which of the three men pictured is Xzibit!
My computer does NOT have a virus! All I want is to pull up a site without ten extra windows appearing on my screen.
So, I’ve decided to make a complete mockery of their
propaganda techniques that probably cost them millions in market research and put them to my own use. Stick it to the man,
if you will.
Okay, so all I did was play in Paint a little bit and alter
the ad to make fun of Sean. But I did it with attitude. And that, my friends, is what counts.
The original annoying pop-up ad
you have it. An evil pop-up transformed into something not so evil. But don't be intimdated by my awesomely wonderful oh-my-Diane-that's-the-greatest-thing-I've-ever-seen
(*cough*) success! With a little imagination and creativity, you can do it, too! In fact, you ad spoof doesn't even have to make
sense. As long as its aim is to make fun of Sean, it's all good!
pop-up hunting, and remember, it's all about the attitude.
