Bad Ad Man's 20+ Advertising No-No's

We need and desire advertising.   But how about when the Bad Ad Man crosses the line by presenting ads that violate society's rules of evasiveness, deciency and in good taste, or plain annoying just to sell more stuff? Don't you get ticked off with ad methods like these?


Out and About
- Supermarket displays that are so large they significantly impede the flow of shopping carts
- Ads embedded into acrylic-topped restaurant dining tables

On the Internet
- SPAM. . . . . . (and we're not talking canned meat here)
- Pop-up ads that take you right off the page you're viewing to another full page ad
- "Skip this Ad" control missing for first 5 seconds so you can't shut off the ad
- Videos with a commercial (sometimes over 60 seconds) preceeding the video
- Videos with the controls disabled so you can't shut off or bypass the ad

On Television
- Loud-talking announcer automobile and product ads
- The sound volume on the television noticably increases during commerical time
- 30 min. show takes 60 mins. because of SO MANY COMMERCIALS - up to 15 in a row
- "Wardrobe malfunctions" - I'd love to meet the person who came up with the phrase

See a full list of bad advertising methods at: When Advertising Crosses the Line - An AdsValue Opinion .  If you have other ad methods that "cross-the-line" - let's hear about it.

AdsValue encourages agencies and businesses to practice socially responsible advertising and don't you become the Bad Ad Man.
