Watch Ads
« on: February 18, 2014, 03:41:05 AM »

Please tell me I'm not the only one who cannot stop noticing that all the watch ads are set to 10:10 now. I'm not crazy...right?
I just went on Google Images and looked through a bunch of watch ads. 10:10.
I've been seeking out watch ads in the airport. 10:10.
Random ads in stores. 10:10.
They're everywhere :o

Creepy...

Kinda sad that after months of no activity, this board gets a post about watch ads...

I'm trying to rekindle conversation! Starting with what I noticed in the airport because of So Yesterday.

It makes a lot of sense when you think about it.

That's really interesting! Now I know. Although I might still get creeped out surrounded by watch ads at 10:10.
