VoIP: The Movie

from the oh,-please-make-it-stop dept

This is almost painful. A broadband provider trying to push the concept of VoIP (no, they don't deserve any more publicity by being named here) has decided to start an advertising campaign for VoIP that involves a series of movie trailers about "VoIP: The Movie" which are designed to look like trailers from a thriller movie, and which aren't at all clear about what they're really advertising (though, the phone does seem to play a central part). Cue movie trailer voiceover voice: "No one can escape it, we're all slaves to it...."

    Dreadful Dolby Stereo Ads

    For as long as I can remember, every movie in the movie theater comes with dreadful ads for Dolby Stereo, be it closeups of screeching train wheels or shabbily dressed youngsters jumping up and down on garbage cans. Is there a way to outlaw such ads?

    well, you could always try throwing yourself under those train wheels, after that I doubt you'll ever hear them screech again...
