Awesomely Funny Geared ad

I'll admit I never pay attention to any ads on sites as many others do.

To me I take the same response as ad's on TV. That is if they ain't funny I don't bother paying attention to them.

The Geared ad caught my attention mainly from the 2 million downloads (Rivaling Flight Control!). I continued reading on and got a nice chuckle out of the ad, especially the bottom line. I'd like to say well done for making my day Bryan and if I didn't already have Geared I would have bought it just for that ad.

Also I'm not sure if the ad prices are correct but by going on his stats to have a full screen banner up the top is
$7.80 per hour
$187.20 per day
$1310.40 per week
$5616 per month
$67392 per year

Looking line Arn and Blake are rolling in it

I find its humor at the "Minigore" level.

This is the only site where I purposely pay attention to ads.
