We learnt this 1 weird trick (to stop boring you with our ads)

Unless you’re an avid fan of ad blocker, you’ve no doubt seen our Raygun ads hangin’ out beside the funny catz lol pictures you check out on your breaks, or down below the videos playing on your favourite YouTube channel.

To be honest – I was getting a bit bored with them. If I’m going to be seeing adverts everywhere, I’d much rather be amused by them! So I’ve started to play around with creating some with a little more humor. Our first ideas were to make ads, which make fun of other ads. It’s Ad-ception.

Ironically (or not) they don't actually tell you the '1 weird trick' when you click on them.

Ironically (or not) they don’t actually tell you the ‘1 weird trick’ when you click on them. I know this, because my own mother clicks them.

You know the ads I’m talking about, the ones that claim you will learn ‘1 weird trick for losing belly fat’ or find out ‘how a mom earns $12,999 a week working from home’ – if you would only click here!

But now I’ve been looking at these ads for so long that I’m no longer sure they make sense. Here’s what I have so far:

Robbie blasts errors working from home. MILLIONS of errors.

What if this 1 weird trick is actually really weird? I for one feel compelled to find out. .

How could anyone hate Robbie?

Kind of an awesome prize for winning the internet sweepstakes, yes?

      Thank you, Hannah 🙂 I think I used excessive exclamations because the ads I’m playing off generally do – but I agree that it doesn’t really work that well here!

    I like the “one weird trick” and the “internet sweepstakes”. Let’s talk about how to get them on the UG site and a podcast site I’m putting together.
