    He wanted to get your attention, and he succeeded, good advertising on that part. But should he be taken seriously? No Idea, I would never advertise that way.

    Shitty banners attract attention.

    Haha, I like that - like LukaB said, he DID get your attention, didn't he? ;)
    And although it might be a bit extreme, who says the service is bad?

    The banner is found below all the PMs we send or receive in BHW itself.

    To the people who are guessing how's the sales page, you could simply access your PM Inbox, open any of the PMs and find the banner below it which will take you to the website.

    Heres a UK car leasing company. Regularly voted into the worst 10 websites in the world. If you actually spend 15 minutes on the site you will see its a high converting work of art and everything on it is there for a reason
    Sometimes Slick , pro sites dont catch the eye.

    The uglier the better.. people ignore things that look cookie cutter.. or too much like the rest.

    It stands out and wins.

    Might be true, but it just hurts my eyes to be on there for even a minute...
    I tried to stay, to check it out properly (and I thought it was kinda "cute") but the moment that girl started to sing, I was off.
    Probably it works better for others though.

    LOVE that site lol...that is our "go to" site when we want to get the point "ugly sometimes works" point across. Love the Darth Vadar mask and "play my stupid game" - wonder how many people play that game...my guess would be a TON ;)

    His signature did one better than just getting your attention, you created this thread after viewing that signature so technically he got like 200+ views off of 1 viewer
