An excited little mouse!


you succeeded at the ad-task inside a 60 tall and 200 pixel wide box at the top of every page?

There was stuff like "shoot 5 ducks in this carnival game to win an ipod" but my favorite was a one featuring a fat old man with a lemonade sitting on a pool float in summer in a pool that you had to click on rapidly to make him laugh and the ad said "Many have tried. Only few succeeded." and I succeeded and thus got a popup window. But I don't remember what the window lead to exactly.

This was in the dark ages of pre adblock/ublocker and also in the era where refreshing the page could roll an ad with autoplay audio with some guy saying "CONGRATULATIONS. YOU WON!" on the page much louder than anything else, btw.

Police Assault In Progress

I miss those ads more than anything, somehow they were less annoying than modern ones

My favorites were the bush era "shoot bin laden win a DVD player" ones. Commit extrajudicial manslaughter, earn the ability to watch cheaper by the dozen!

The game Monopoly sold for $2 in 1935. In the box, you get monopoly money.

That original stack of monopoly money from 1935 is worth $50 as a collectors item.

Monopoly money literally holds more value than the US Dollar.

I punched that monkey. I didn't spend any time on the website it led me to, but I punched that monkey a whole lot.
