Advertisements. I’ve already talked about the ads that say you are the 1,000,000th visitor here, but other advertisements have been swarming the Internet causing havoc throughout the world. These are talking advertisements.
You know, those annoying ads that start speaking whenever you visit some of your favorite sites. Sometimes they can be funny and sometimes they can be just plain annoying (as opposed to the other types of annoying).
Take the following scene from my math class:
Teacher: Blah Blah Blah…Calculus…Blah Blah Blah…Fractions…
Kid’s computer: CONGRATULATIONS YOU WON!!!
Kid with computer: (Face Red)
Now I am not saying that this was not funny, (for what is more funny than laughing at a fellow man’s embarrassment #wearesuchgoodpeople), but the question is why is it necessary? Would this type of advertising happen in real life?
Well let’s imagine…Close your eyes and- Well actually do not close your eyes or else you won’t be able to read. Keep your eyes open and envision the following…
You are walking down the street, looking at stores and attractions when all of a sudden a huge sign comes, blocks your way to where you want to go and screams, “CONGRATULATIONS YOU WON!!!!”
Personally, I do not think that would be very fun. Thus, rather than letting the machines take over and tell us what we’ve won, I say we fight against the speaking advertisements, not just for ourselves but for humankind.
Either that or we could shut off our computer volume, but that just seems like too much work.
