World's longest banner ad is infuriatingly clever

9 February 2011

longest banner adBanner advertisements are a pain in the hole aren't they? Often placed strategically, so when you try getting to a homepage, you inadvertently end up rolling over an ad that starts singing and dancing at you... and you can't find the mute button on your computer fast enough.

Well, not all banner ads are annoying. In fact, some of them are annoyingly clever.

There's one of the BMW X3 which is billing itself as the world's longest banner ad and, well, aside from being really, really long, it actually preempts your behaviour and turns out to be rather smart indeed.

We won't spoil the joke of it. Instead, we'll direct you to click here to view the banner in all its clever-clever glory.

Feel free to get annoyed with it all the same.

    Nice, an advert that perfectly represents the car it's trying to flog you, being unneccessarily large, not as clever as it thinks it is, and designed for smug cunts by other smug cunts.

    I had to click on it for it to work. Not so clever as I don't make a habit out of clicking on ads.
