I can't keep up....!!!! get me a beer...!!!!!!


http://www.thetruthaboutmortgage.com...-ads-are-back/

Dancing aliens rejoice. The ads are back. Apparently dreams do come true.

A few weeks ago a blogger from the New York Times had commented that the silly dancing aliens, grooving silhouettes, and freaked out office worker advertisements had mysteriously disappeared from websites across the Internet.

The omnipresent, mostly obnoxious ads were part of a mortgage campaign by Lowermybills.com, an Experian company that specializes in lead generation.

Their disappearance was attributed to the recent credit crunch, and their relative popularity was clear when the company began cutting back on online advertising geared towards mortgages.

A company spokeswoman denied any such cutbacks, but said it was possible for the company to shift ad spend to others areas of their business model, such as comparison shopping.

Many in fact thought the mortgage lead
business was on the way out after the infamous ads disappeared.

Nonetheless, the ads are back, and they should be enough to help disgruntled mortgage enthusiasts crack a smile in this down market.

Finally, a feel-good story in the mortgage industry.

You’ve probably seen the ads, one where a green alien is doing some kind of Macarena-esque dance, or possibly the “office freak out” where dancing women are suddenly caught off guard.

Though the ads have returned, they seem to have been altered slightly, and I’m not talking about a new set of dance moves.

The ads used to say, “Mortgage Rates Fall Again!”, but were later changed to say, “House payments fall again!” after interest rates continued to rise.

I wasn't asleep Brook, I'd dropped some change on the floor and when I crawled under the table I was amazed at what I saw there. Here there were dozens of cartoon characters running around and dancing and singing. I started to feel strange - then I realised I was having a Disney spell.

Okay Mickey, who was the smart guy that put a goldfish in the beer you brought me? Just because I had ordered potato chips, I didn't need fish to go with them. Now I feel as though I've got butterflies in my stomach.

Jeez Brook, a man's gotta sleep some time. Wot, wiv watchin' tennis half the day and half the night, by the time I get to the Lounge, my head has only just stopped flicking from side to side and I'm knackered. Then one drink, a dance, a bit of slap 'n' tickle, and I'm history. I'm not as young as I feel some times and then I finish up seeing double and acting single. Oh what a racket, and it's so hot.

Hey, you guys will never guess what I saw and heard on my way here from the funny farm. If you watch closely and listen real hard, you may just get a snatch of it . . . . . .





"Now listen you two, keep away from that Avalon Lounge - do you hear me? There's a hippopotamus loose and you never know what could happen. And look both ways before crossing the road. And hold each other's hands. Then hurry home with your little sister's supper. Now, get going."

Thank you futureyes, but there's something I have to get off my chest - I'm not real good company at the moment - I kinda feel flat - if you know what I mean, and there is a hammering in my head. that seems to be going on forever. I feel as though I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. I feel very depressed. I think I need a pick-me-up. Or a push-me-pull-you. I think a good stiff drink or two should do the trick.

ah brinty ...

i understand ... you are feeling deflated at the moment ...

once you get that off your chest ... you will feel light once again ...

you feel you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders ... it must be time to remove the backpack you carry and remove your burden ...

you are ALWAYS good company brinty ...

when i feel deflated i come to this lounge and seek out your energy ...

it is you who helps me remove the weight i sometimes carry on my own shoulders ... and i leave the lounge ... lighter than when i came

so i shall say thank YOU brinty ... for always helping me find my way ...
always here for my self and others ...

when you visit again ... let me help you with that heavy pack ... the least i can do for all you have done for me ...

to getting things off your chest ...

and inflating once more

love to you funny guy ...

Oh futureyes, you have touched my soft spot (nice, do it again) I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. I feel I can now go out and face the world. First things first though - It seems my feet and legs don't want to come with me. I spoke to them and was told that they felt embarrassed because I was wearing odd socks. I looked down and saw that I had on one white sock and one green sock. When I looked in my sock draw, I saw another pair the same so I told them thay were wrong and I could prove it.
