Next up: pop-up ads on spiders

Some company in Germany is promoting tying little banner ads to flies as a way of marketing your business.

For reals.

The flies buzz around and do whatever flies do, but they've got these little banners behind them, kinda like those Sandpiper planes at the beach and over stadiums all the time.

Added bonus: the flies get so tired from the extra weight that they can't fly much higher than eye level, and they stop to rest a lot, so people are drawn to the movement in front of them and follow it to its resting point and see the ad.

Of course the whole thing is moot: PETA's going to try and shut that shit down 20 minutes after hearing about it.
