What on earth made them think I would get it? The worst thing is that the advertiser is getting fundamentally screwed here. The conversation we were having was a humorous one about story principles, acting methodology, etc. I don’t know what the ads are about. And White Rabbit has nothing at all to do with ice cream. Nothing at all. I wouldn’t dream of clicking.

Advertisements

F&*%ing with Facebook’s Head #2

February 17, 2012

Lie to facebook! Because all its advertisers are certainly lying to you.

Changed all my info again. I went though a brief phase in which I claimed to be a male, gay, widower. But then they stopped the adverts altogether, except for one very lonely banner pushing a gay strip joint in Vegas.

Time to make some adjustments. So I became female again, continued to lie about my age, changed my relationship status to Single (and quickly deleted the auto post to my wall before my friends freaked out) and hey presto! A whole new set of more amusing advertising popped up.

Male barber services, huh. Can only assume they also have a special rate on throat cutting, since all the other adverts deal with getting your boyfriend back and finding out why men lie. We all know texting your ex is bad, specially if like the advertisers, you can't spell for shit. And then why men lie. Well I think we all know it's because if they didn't lie about a lot of shit we're shout at them a lot more.

F*$king with facebook’s head

December 23, 2011

I don’t know if you’ve noticed how knee-jerk responsive farcebook is every post you make. It’s insane, and stupid. Currently has me pegged as a gay dog lover since I changed my profile to say I was interested in “men and women”. Because I am. Not necessarily for sex in either case, since I do have a boyfriend.

I’m house sitting for someone who has two very needy golden retrievers – or, “men with tails” as she puts it. I posted one or two things about the dogs and voila! Facebook responded with this:

The first dog must have drowned by now. Then there's kitschy home decor art - which along with cheesy lettered signs featuring positive messages to help you in day to day life is huge in the USA - followed by an advert for a kennel that looks like a mental asylum. Chocolates? Because lonely lesbian dog owners need those, or because these particular ones looks a bit like turds. And then an advert for a doggy boutique where you can have your poodle dyed pink, in case she's not already sexy enough for those lonely winter nights.
