Seriously, when are the morons that push internet ad spots going to clue into the face that THE most obnoxious thing on the internet is ad positions that make noise? And what if I don't particularly want to watch some dude recursively breaking his leg? BD, get your shit together and find a better marketing team.

The noises that guy in that video makes, sounds like the noises Sloth from The Goonies makes.

Yes! Thank you! Absolutely horrible ad. Maybe if it didn't loop. It followed me to the videos earlier today.

1. There is a glitch with this thread, on front page it says zero replies.

2. I have never seen the ad, you Americans are talking about, so I can't comment on that, but I have to deal with this Kokanee Beer ad, I don`t have the quickest internet connection so this thing is freezing a Photos section for me. Is anybody in Canada experiencing similar problems.

Hear hear!

It is almost as annoying as websites that still play music in the background.

In reply to #1: It's because it was moved from a General to S&F.

#2 and following are beyond my control, hence the reason for the move.

I've never seen this ad. Mozilla firefox and ad blocker plus seems to take care of the problem.

I don't know what is wrong with you people. The admin for this site go out of there way to make sure we have top of the line animated ads with sound and everything and all ya'll can do is bitch. Same with keeping us up to date on important MMA title fights. They provide us with this service and you guys show no gratitude.

Would you rather look at the same old boring static ad?

Bunch of fucking ingrates!

Major problem for some folks that want to check on the site at work. Suddenly the sound track comes blaring over the top of the cubicle walls. Clearly a public service to keep folks from surfing the net during work...or breaks.

(So glad I don't work in a gopher farm)

OK folks, thanks for the feedback. We've pointed BD to this thread and they promptly responded by providing a version of the ad without sound. It should be live by now.

Thanks to BD for responding to our feedback! Now lets reward them by clicking the ads... Smile

Cheers,

Firefox + AdBlock Plus = What ads?

I NEVER see ads on the internet anymore. It's awesome.

The ad is pretty cool minus the stupid sound associated with it.

couldn't agree more

this ad in fact is what finally compelled me to finally install Flashblock for firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433

No more annoying ad, and just click on the icon for any flash you want to see.

Is anyone actually still hearing sound with this ad? As far as I know everything has been swapped out with the version without sound.
