Okay, so I signed into my AdWords account
and Google had an Advertisement about putting
signing up for a FREE beta test to Google's gBlimp Ad.

I was stoked, I said okay let's try this out...

Here is my outcome.




I read everything.

It sounds PERFECT. Even the Perfect Success Stories...
My kind of thing. I'M SOLD SIGN ME UP!!!!

So I click their "Call to Action" Button
and I begin filling out the form...


Next thing you know...

They hit me with this page below!




LOL Google. Very creative. They GOT ME...
Be warned everyone who uses AdWords...

Google is out to beat everyone's April Fools Jokes for 2011.
Did anyone else buy into this? haha

    Did not hear of this but very funny. Not quite as funny as the San Seriffe joke decades ago but close. Once on that page however, knowing it was a joke, I never would have thought of clicking the sign up button. I love the mock success stories, especially the yodeler. BTW, anyone know the real stadium standing in for A. Lai Stadium. Pretty sure it's not Dodger Stadium or any major league stadium I'm familiar with.
