Remember... Life before ads everywhere

So we know NASCAR is big with ads, but they’ve actually improved by starting NASCAR “Side by Side;” where they will show commercials and the race at the same time. It’s a genius idea for a sport that doesn’t have stoppages for commercial breaks. However I fear we may be headed to side by side in every sport. And no, I don’t blame the economy for this one….

So remember when you could go on YouTube, type in your video and just watch what you looked for? Awesome wasn’t it? Well that’s long gone now. You are now either forced to watch a 5, 15, or 30 second ad before you can get to what you want to see. And the amount of time watching the ad is completely random. There are days where I feel like every other video I try to watch is some kind of advertisement. If you are one of the fortunate ones to not get a video ad, you probably get random ads popping up on the video itself that you need to X out of. But that’s not where the ads end.

Remember when OnDemand was the greatest thing ever? Miss a show, there it is OnDemand with commercials, but you had the ability to fast forward through them. Not anymore. This to me is really stupid because even if you are FF through the commercial, you still see it even if you don’t hear what
they are saying. I understand that that’s why they make you get the DVR, but it never used to be that way. Times were good. Now it’s all about the Benjamins.

The NBA is adding more and more ads/commercial time every day. Now they are saying that uniform ads are almost inevitable. All we can r hope for is that you are assigned your ad by your style of play. Like hopefully Chris Bosh has a big Vagisil logo on his chest… but get used to the ads if you haven’t already, they aren’t going anywhere.
