Default That Curly Hair Solutions Ad...

on the left side of my screen is obnxious. The fact that it has a lady in a skimpy dress with "Video Gallery" pasted on her makes me feel weird about having it up at work. I have to keep scrolling my screen up whenever anyone is around so as to cover up most of her. Ick, maybe if I keep refreshing the Miss Jessie ad will come back.

You aren't the first to feel this way. There are two other threads dedicated to this ad.

Hmm I saw a thread about a different ad a couple days ago, but haven't seen one on this particular ad. That ad wasn't nearly as bad.

Thumbs down

It does look like a porno ad.

That ad and a few other ads were discussed last week.

Here is the thread.

The blue squares (The Root Brush Video and Roller Jaw Clamp Video) look like condom packages to me.

I can't agree more. I said it in the other thread and I'll say it here.

That is just bad advertising. I just noticed today that I scroll really fast past it if my boss comes out of his office, as if I was looking at something bad.

Its embarrasking I tell you. I'm all embarassed over A HAIR PRODUCT AD! good grief!

I agree - it's porno-y.

A roller jaw clamp condom? Ouch, though I can think of a few men that could use one of those clamped on permanently.

I wonder if anyone actually clicks on them (on purpose)? I can't imagine buying a root brush or a jaw clamp that comes with a video tutorial. I don't care about my curls quite that much, and neither item looks like it would benefit my hair. More like tangle it horribly.

The ad wouldn't be so bad if it focused on her hair instead of her scantily clad upper body.
