Google has new plans for adwords

10 replies
When I first saw this, I thought it was a joke.

Google plans on allowing advertisers to target their ads to major cities using gigantic "g-blimps".

This sucks. It's bad enough we are bombarded with ads everyday, now they will be coming out of the sky.

but... this is awesome if you have a massive media buying budget.

    And then you thought, "Why not pass it off on the WF as real?"

        ? I do not think so, this has been news for quite some time, back many months I started reading about this, it's hosted on giggle.com and has an application form so it a big joke if so.

        Yes.. possible, but the idea behind a blimp its lighter than air, hence it floats, but if its got a massive screen on it, it may not work :/ Besides its still a joke
