And it starts off with a V|agra ad, How apropo.

Funny, my viewing started with an Emirates ad, with an aircraft gaining altitude instead.
Nice looking Kilts. I must remember to stand with my legs farther apart, it must denote masculinity.

I started off with a T-Mobile ad,

I've got a very low tolerance level for BS and fast reaction times. I likely switched off in less than two seconds.

Maybe I'll give it another go, but the advertising and the shill grates heavily on me.

I got a T-mobile ad too. Must be based on region as Fred is reasonably close. Maybe they're trying to market more Viagras in New England?

Anyway, the kilts are nice. I need to get one someday. Mom was supposed to be buying one. I suppose if one doesn't turn up by Christmas I'll break down and get one. Although "masculine" isn't necessarily the image I'm trying to project. That said, I need something manly for those times when adherence to a gender role is mandated.

And yes Anthony, I'll be sure to stand with my legs apart... :lol:

I got the video with nothing before and just a static T-Mobile display for a few seconds after.
Don't know if they stop the ads after the video has been posted for awhile, or I should thank Firefox/Ad Block +/and/or Ghostery. 8)

The ad may also have something to do with the cookies on your machine. Or not ....

No cookies here, save for ones that are explicitly enabled. I'm also configured to lie about my browser type and operating system just for good measure.

I fondly recall one time before my ex's brain imploded her looking at a web-server log and seeing a user-agent type of "DGC I-Browse/RDOS 7.5" and brought it to my attention because it piqued her curiosity. I told her that it was me looking in on things. We both got a good laugh over it. Those were fun days.
