Dancing Mortgage Ad Rant

Am I the only one totally annoyed by those dancing mortgage ads that seem to be all over the Internet? I thought the housing bubble pretty much burst. Here is a youtube on the subject, not such good quality, but you get the idea...

I hate ads, period. The "mute" button on the remote is a wonderful invention.

Firefox, Adblock, flashblock -- I haven't seen any of these ads for a long time.

I don't like the dancing mortgage ads either. I usually ignore the ads (mute is almost always on, but the ads that have the moving mouse fake me out.

I click on them but never buy anything so they have to pay the website that is running them.
