Default "5 Beers in 1 Huge Glass" idiots in advertising

I know for some of the people here there no ads. But for the rest of us who don't have a premium membership we are subjected to crappy ads. The ebay ones are an okay idea. If the thread is about conicals then the ads usually is too.

The most stupid one is:

5 Beers in 1 Huge Glass
Giant Beer Glass holds 60 oz. Only $11.95. Word.

My favorite part is the "Word." at the end.

Assuming you regularly drink 5 beers a night, would anyone want this for anything other than the frat house novelty?

Unless you are power drinking your beer would be flat and warm by the time you got to ounces 39 through 60.

Has anyone ever clicked this ad on purpose?

Just FYI the ad that appears for this thread is the one you mention, presumably because you mentioned it :P

I clicked it.... in hopes that the click through rate for the site helps support HBT. However I think the ad(or rather the idea of) for the chuggler is more stupid. That said I'll tolerate a lot for the sites I want to support. Even though I have ad block plus installed I have HBT whitelisted so I see the ads and I follow them occasionally, I consider it my duty to HBT.

Hummm I don't adblock on HBT but I still don't see ads...

There must be a premium reason why I don't see those ads.....

I was going to mention this ad but didn't want to shoot HBT in the foot. But I just wonder about the marketing genius that would think that this would be a good item for HBT'ers.

It's like Instant Coffee ads on a website for coffee fanatics.

I've had 5 beers in a night before but they were probably 3 -4 hours apart.

Yum, those last few ounces must be just delicious.

Word.

I use a 1L mug quite regularly. I wouldn't mind having a 1/2 gal mug. Shush to all you nay-sayers.
