FAILED AD


I Don't click on ads.  Ever. I May watch them on television, or tolerate ENJOY! them on MacBreak weekly, but I don't click on them.  Also, I use a Mac, so this stupid ad, isn't going to work on me.
Stupid ad
This redirected me from my intended website, played a HELPFUL!!! WOMAN'S!!! VOICE!!! :-)!!! 
Informed me that I had just become eligible for a 1000$ WAL-MART GIFT CARD!!! 
And instructed me, nay forced me to click on the "Pop-Up window!!!" Especially since it looked like it was a window hovering over my desktop.  It almost had me, until I realized that the Pop-UP WiNdOW!!!  Was for a windows PC.
Quite a nice little FaKe PoP-Up WinDOW!!!,  If I used Windows {and was entirely stupid} I might think "Oh, a window popped up, I better press the close button.  But of course by then it's too late.
 
In case any of my windows using readers read this, always close your windows with a keyboard shortcut. 

And don't shop at Wal-Mart if you can help it.
