Now That’s A Crappy Ad

So I’m in NYTimes.com’s arts section and….Yuck! No! Not this!

The display ad, a BOB, is screaming in caps, “ARE YOU TAKING LAXATIVES BECAUSE OF YOUR CANCER PAIN MEDICATION.” There’s a toll-free number. The graphic is horrible, brown, sphincter-like.

I wince and in the name of research, click. The ad spawns a new window…the Times’ homepage. It appears to be from Glaxo.

Make it go away, Mr. Niesenholtz. Please, make it go away.
