SpotRunner is an online agency selling prefab adverts for $500. You take your pick from a set of standard clips to stitch together your campaign.
This Slate video captures it all rather well.
I thought the generic political ads were funny – they’re almost a parody they’re that close to the “real thing”.
A few minutes browsing the ads at SpotRunner is a weird experience, I’m not sure if it’s funny or grim. Are ads now this cheap? Or were they always this empty?
