Gotta put my two cents worth in here. If one is prone to seizures, this will do it. This ad is as bad as the pop-up surveys that appeared now and again that did nothing except irritate the reader.
A lot of ads do that quite often.

You know. That flashing ad that says something like: "This is not a joke - you are the 10,000th visitor." I very nearly threw coffee at it this evening. It's the most irritating ad I've seen in my life. It clearly is a joke and a naively dishonest one. Any chance it could be replaced with...
