Captive Internet Audiences… in the Elevator

from the stretching-it dept

A new startup apparently has decided that elevators are a good place to hit people with internet advertising. There are a million problems with this idea in my mind, but it brings up the issue that recently it seems people are trying to find anything that people look at and place ads on them. Interesting strategy, but what’s the return?

What price sanctitiy?

So the next innovation in advertising is this: FAKEPRESSRELEASE: ComEd to introduce discount. Starting tomorrow, ComEd will give a discount on electricity to customers who allow ComEd to install electronic billboards in their bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms.John Bolt, of ComEd said advertisers love the program, “We’ve got Dominos and Pizza Hut fighting eachother to own the refrigerator door. It’s great!” Certain restrictions apply to the deal, such as guaranteed use of the rooms in which billboards are installed. Said Bolt, “We have to be sure they are looking at the signs, so the next step is sure to be web cams into their homes, you know, for monitoring purposes only.”The special promotion is expected to last indefinitely.
