Ok now. These are starting to become a very common sight when I go web browsing.

Of course I know that this has been around for a long time but lately I've noticed a huge increase in the frequency of these ads. Normally I only encounter them in the more questionable sites I go to but now I'm tripping over them everywhere. Just now I left a site where the left banner, top one and the right were three different kinds of Vimax ads. Anyone else here noticed this ridiculous increase?
Those were my two cents.

Nope. I've never seen it. Never even heard of it.

Of course, it could be a regional thing. Lots of websites use the same third party ad handler that can identify IP groups.

But now you have, you'll be ordering a couple of cases, amiright? :)

Yeah, I've never seen them either. It'll be an IP thing, Spang's right

BTW, I've never even seen a porn add. I never go to questionable sites. PP, you must be some kind of pervert. I'll warn people about you!

Those ads have been popping up all over Wooster collective and Bombing Science for me, and those sites are dedicated to street art and graffiti. They both usually only have ads for other street art sites. The pill ads pop up over top of the site's ads. I thought I got a virus for a while, but neither Norton or McAfee has found anything and I even downloaded and ran AVG but it didn't find anything either.

Oh, hell. I'll be investing in the COMPANY! :D

The realism in the ad… 2 twenty one year olds having longevity problems rings so true. Haha!

That's just because bestiality and necrophilia aren't technically considered “porno”. :P

:( Darn. I've been found out.

Actually I mean things like torrent sites and such. Places where I expect to see ads like this.

It just started to become odd to me when I started seeing them pop up while reading MSN articles.


Edit: Do me a favor. Go to this page and check if you guys see Vimax ads there. This is the one where I'm blasted with 3 of them.
Those were my two cents.

On your porn site there?
Nope, just two ads for the “2012 comet” (whatever that is), and Google text ads for Australian satellite TV, book keeping and Mobile phone plans.

They're all run by Google it looks like. Looks like that company just bid for those sites for your IP locations. Maybe they know something? o_O

Well for the looks of it, they bought Iba location as well

I've never seen the 2012 comet ad. That's probably some kooky idea related to the Mayan end of the world prophecy. Where have you been? It's the biggest hit since the 2000 end of the world prophecy.

I was impressed by the sublime acting of those two girls in the second ad. It's like there's a hippopotamus in the bedroom.

Edit: Oh wow. That one made me crack up.

Other odd places I've seen these: Wikipedia, Tv.com, various webcomics, BBC.

All these ads just for one product must cost a fortune.

I'm not seeing it any more. Maybe they gave up trying to compete with Viagra for this area or something.
