There are a lot of ways to get around advertising. You can change the channel or use TiVo or a VCR to skip commercials on TV. You can change the channel on a radio, or listen to podcasts, where you might fast-forward through commercials. You can use a pop-up blocker online. You can ignore outdoor billboards, and airplanes trailing signs and blimps above sporting events. But what advertisements would you actually pay attention to? Funny ones with big production values such as Super Bowl ads? Ads that were very relevant to you and your life? Ads that offered you special discounts? Where would you like to see these ads? Share your thoughts on this question, and I’ll include the best ones in next week’s Your Take Roundup.
