Another boring banner

This is a screen grab from a banner ad for a new Nokia phone that I found on Bannerblog.

I don’t know about you, but I think the copywriting is incredibly clumsy.

“Thing’ is such an unattractive word. And to use it twice in the same sentence is just plain lazy.

What really saddens me though, is this ad is just one of millions of poorly written banner ads that appear everyday on the internet.

Why oh why are banners so boring?

I honestly cannot remember the last time I saw one that made me go “wish I’d done that!”
