What are some annoying banner ads you've seen around the internet?

Oh that f*cking thing.  Every time I see that ad I want to hurl my computer out the window.  Another really horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE banner ad is the one with a paparazzi camera chasing Brad Pitt and you have to try and click a picture of him while he dodges away and you hear the shutter sounds of the camera......ARRRRRRRGH.

I've seen that Brad Pitt one.  It is annoying.  There's also one where Johnny Depp moves back and forth, and you have to plant a kiss on his cheek ;D

There is a similar one that's fun where you have to knock out a boxer who moves back and forth.  I was playing with that ad one night for about a half hour ;D  There's also a baseball one where you hit a homerun and win an iPod.  Banner ads .. the next generation in arcade gaming ;D

Those damn things scare me every single time. They're extremely loud to begin with, but seem ten times worse when you have headphones on.

They scare the crap out of me whenever I forget that I have the speakers up a little loud OR as much as the many times my mom comes in my room without knocking and scares the s*it out of me

There's one out there I've seen (and messed around with) where some woman starts talking, and she says to type things in her text box, and she will repeat them.  I was making her swear for the longest time ;D

There's another similar one where you ask her questions, and she answers.  Jokingly, I asked her something really dirty, and she said "You are a pervert" ;D ;D ;D

You mean you're allowed to do things other than make her swear?

My one friend spends hours at a time searching the internet for different versions of that thing, just to see which one swears the funniest.

You can make her say all kinds of crude things.  You can ask her to do crude things, but it can get quite tricky to get her to say the correct pronunciation ;D

someone tell me....i don't know if it's local but...

there is an ad that reads "insurance rates drop in NY!!!!"  but it features a variety of girls dancing in an office, badly pretending to be surprised that they were caught dancing in the office.

bad. bad acting.  I liked the first girl best, but man....ugh.


now, when i'm talkinga bout it, i can't seem to find it to show you.

I had a friend follow through on one of those.  She clicked the pop-up to claim her "free" prize, which turned out to be a discounted vacation, which she still had to pay for.  The free part was the discount, so she ended up with a trip that she really didn't want
