Advertising hits a new low in Linking Ring

Postby Matt Herbert » December 12th, 2007, 4:01 pm

Has anyone seen the new ad on page 28 of the December Linking Ring. This one shocked me. The ad is calling out a new "Perfect Levitation" with a web page address to view a demo. From there they take you to an ad pushing the rental of magic dvd's. I'm sure this will be shut down quickly, but was amazed that anyone would even consider doing this.

The ad appeared in several places. There's a thread on the subject here:

And a much longer one at the Cafe, should it ever deign to reappear.
