Stare at this ad for 20 seconds—does it work for you?

(click ad, via) The zit-spots kept coming and going, and never fully disappeared for me. Plus, now I have a fucking headache. Conclusion: OXY doesn't eliminate pimples and gives you a headache. Also: I don't have 20 fucking seconds to waste staring at an ad, dickwads. Ad agency: Ogilvy, Johannesburg.
Here's two better optical illusion ads: a trippy one for a Calgary hemp store,  and a vibrating one for a sex toy seller.

Don't hate ranter.

It works.

But yeah most people won't waste 20 seconds to dick around looking at this ad. Unless they're idiots like me trying to avoid work.

First it seemed like UFOs appearing to be flying in formations that resemble constellations, then it all turned into a religious experience.

Jesus Christ appeared, followed by Saul of Tarsus (later known as the Apostle Paul) then Angels Gabriel and Moroni.

Finally the Blessed Mother, carrying the Infant Jesus, and now I have an Excedrin headache #666.
