Automatic Advertising

At first, the idea of a computerized "ad generator" sounds strange. All this site does is match up Flickr pictures and supposedly random "slogans". But, being exposed to advertising everywhere, you quickly become mesmerized by the apparent appropriateness of the slogans to the pictures.

I went expecting to just look, and ended up staying for quite a while. In fact, I left the window open and just switched back to it from time to time for a little hit. The fact that the ads go by a bit too quickly adds to the appeal. After you watch it for a while, you'll see some of the same words being reused, but it's still pretty interesting.

See the ad generator for yourself.
