eircom via Google’s DoubleClick advertises on PirateBay

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

It seems you can now see eircom ads on the worlds most notorious file sharing website – The site that the music and movie industry wants to shut down is now being serviced with ads by Google’s company DoubleClick. Below is a screenshot of an eircom ad. Click for bigger pic. I very much doubt eircom knew their ad buying company would put the ads there.

Join the Muff Diving Club and buy a t-shirt

Friday, July 11th, 2008

It exists. There’s a town called Muff in County Donegal in Ireland. And they have a diving club. They also have t-shirts.

Don’t forget to Digg this.

Update: While on honeymoon I drove carefully through Muff.

I got to 30 seconds

New Club Orange ad

While I recover from London and the chicken feet and Shark Fin gruel, an ad company sent me this. What’s the url at the end, I couldn’t figure it first time:

Rock Rig the Vote

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Anyone else get that FG email from HQ? I only found mine in the spamfilter now. Already being discussed on

Dear Damien,
As the campaign gathers pace, with just over three weeks to go, I just wanted to advise you of a number of events scheduled over the next week or two.


The Party Leader will launch a new innovation in outdoor advertising tomorrow; Fine Gael is the first political party to use Opinionators – essentially these are interactive advertising sites, which allow members of the public register their intentions by pressing either a Vote Yes button, or a Vote No button; their vote is recorded – and the running totals are displayed electronically.

We have two sites – one in the ILAC, near Dunnes Stores and the other in Blackrock Shopping Centre – just inside the entrance off Main Street.

It would be extremely helpful if members and/or their family and friends could make a point of visiting these sites, and record a YES vote! (Conscientious objectors can help the Party by not pressing any button, if they can’t press the Yes one!)

The launch is in Blackrock tomorrow afternoon – so, it would be particularly helpful if members in that area could make sure that the Yes vote is well ahead of the No vote – before the Party Leader arrives! (not to mention the media)

Obviously, these sites are highly visible – and we would appreciate members’ voting efforts for the remainder of the campaign.

Early. Often. Stupid. The launch happened yesterday. Wonder how it went? Kind of overshadowed by a gobby Taoiseach. The scallywag. Though none of the Dáil recorder people put it down on the record so you won’t find it on

It’s not so much the whole rigging of the vote really. It’s the fact that the anti-No people can mobilise people too and take advantage by doing their own rent-a-mob tactics. Remember the Turkey in the Eurovision? People get a kick out of ruining things.
