Just seen the most ridiculous ad on Amatomu. Not that it is Amatomu's fault. They just serve ads. The ad is served from Google, once again not that it is Google's fault. But the advertiser.
I forgot to get a snap shot of it. But I will try to explain the add.
It was presented in Flash. The background is of a nice serene beach with gentile waves lapping the shore. A suitcase flies in from the left. But get this. The tag line is "Midrand SA". I just had to laugh.
Where in the world do you find the sea in Midrand SA. Surely this is false advertising. You might fool some international people. But anyone living in SA will know, or should know, or will easily find out, where Midrand is. Just the name, Midrand, suggests that it is up in Gauteng somewhere, you know, somewhere by the Eastrand, Westrand.
