I don’t remember what product this was for, but it was the most blatantly obvious and straightforward advertisement I’ve ever seen. A few days ago, watching a movie on TV, the screen faded out to commercial:
[quote]The following is a message from the <company name> Corporation:
“Have you considered using <company name> products?”[/quote]
If I didn’t laugh so hard that I forgot which company it was, I would totally go use some of their products. Unless they make evil devices like baby-seal clubs or laxatives. Still, I’d be tempted.
Right now, Nintendo is doing a promotion where they’ll give you a Gamecube disc that has Zelda, Zelda II, and both N64 Zelda games if you sign up for a subscription to Nintendo Power. Not that I care about Nintendo Power, but $20 for four awesome games (ok, two awesome games, a weird sidescroller, and an uninspired sequel) is a nice deal.
