Web Ads are getting out of hand... really

We're bombarded with all of those stupid flashing smiley ads, or ads for Proactiv, or ads that yell "Congratulations, you have been selected to win two free ipod nanos!" or some shit like that. Most often, it's either those "WHAT'S YOUR SCORE ON THE DUMB TEST?" or "LOSE FIFTY MILLION POUNDS IN FIVE MINUTES" And today I'm going to talk about the latter.

This is the single funniest ad, to me, and strangest....

Okay, so you can go from FAT BLACK WOMAN TO FAT WHITE WOMAN!!! Don't bother losing weight, but your skin turns lighter.

If that after shot is considered "fab", I'm a little disappointed with the world.

Seriously, is anyone even LOOKING at these before they send them off with a URL, or are they going for comedic relief?
