OMG... boycotting Vaseline products b/c of this stupid add...

... that is messing up the screen when I try to vote up, switch between questions, etc.

I thought they said is was going away... but it's back, and just as annoying as it was before!!!!

Marketing 101... if an add is annoying it attaches a negative connotation to a product thus having the opposite of the desired effective.... just sayin'

  • The bottles are annoying but, honestly I really like the light sage green. It's really calming , much easier on the eye than the normal baby blue.

  • I don't like it either. We have Ad Blocker for a reason. NOT so they can find other ways to promote things. I guess they need all the money they can get. LOL!

  • I haven't even noticed this ad. But I do know what you mean. There have been ads in the past that annoyed the hell out of me. Remember the crawling lice?

  • Have they had one of these major ad programs that hasn't backfired on them yet? First the yellow Capitol One and now this - do the people who work in their advertising department every actually look at the site?
