Vice's animated "Like Free Shit?" banner ads


Reading Waypoint articles today at work and as I’m reading there is a Vice ad asking me if I “Like Free Shit?”. Later in the article is an even larger banner with the same animated text. Aside from not really wanting ‘Shit’ displayed across my work monitor a (the white letters on a salmon-ish background makes it stand out), having bold animated text (the ad cycles between three different sets of text) between paragraphs of thoughtful prose it is just really distracting as a reader.

This may not be able to be something the Waypoint crew has any control over, but I just wanted to throw out there. Shit is my preferred curse word but not like this. Not like this.


I’ll def forward this onto our ads team!


Awesome, thanks!


sorry about that, danika is on it
