So I was surfing the internet today, learning all the intricacies of Windows Movie Maker (don’t ask), when I came across a particularly disturbing ad:
First thought: Eww, gross. Second thought: Wait a second. Haven’t I been asked that question before?
Sure enough, almost two years ago, I was horrified at the same ad, only that time the culprit was Yahoo.
There must be billions of possible search queries out there… are we really hurting for original ideas so much that we need to reuse them? And even if we are… do we have to use spiders as the ad to copy? Why can’t we use a less scary query… like “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, ” or “Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?”
In the meantime, my conclusion remains the same – only now, I’m avoiding two search engines for fear of spiders popping up out of nowhere.
