This hero made a Tumblr to shame shameless marketing campaigns

By now, we’ve all experienced it in one way or another: you’re casually browsing a website when a promo suddenly pops up asking you to sign up for a new service or special offer. But while there’s nothing wrong with a little marketing, recently websites have been growing exceedingly shameless in their promotional efforts.

Fortunately, an anonymous hero has decided to take a stand against this horrendous trend and has created a Tumblr blog called ConfirmShaming, whose sole purpose is to shame the tackiest of promo pop-ups.

There you can find a huge collection of hilariously overreaching marketing and customer retention efforts like this one:

The blog features a wide variety of gaudy pop-up promo examples, but most posts cleverly mock the ever-dwindling size and visibility of opt-out buttons and the tasteless messages that often accompany them.

Go see a bunch of other tacky promotional attempts here.
