Once again I signed on to facebook to be faced with an ad that left me dumbstruck. First, where did this image come from? Hey Bob, how ’bout we use that Elvis chihuahua image for the mortgage refi ad? Only in NY though. I am not sure of how the midwestern folks will relate. WTF?!
There is no way the images for these FB ads are chosen by human beings. There has to be some random flawed algorithm at play here. These are like the hairy guy ads I wrote about awhile back. I am also left wondering what would drive someone to do this illustration. You know, wake up one morning, stare at the blank sheet of paper and think, hey maybe I will put some elvis hair on a rat dog today. Sounds like something my old friend Ed W. would do. Wait! Ed, did you draw this? Or maybe this is your dog. I can see you having a dog like this.
You have to admit that these ads do get attention. And hey, I might refinance with a Bob Dylan pekinese if I could get 4.2%!
And don’t you just wonder why these ridiculous ads keep popping up on MY facebook page? Hmmm, could it be the MFTA tag?
