Re: Too much conflation of ads with advertising...
what I really hate is when, at the end of the movie/show, they shove the credits to one side immediately that they appear and talk over it all
If only I could give you a billion upvotes. Not a fan of credits myself, but I sometimes like the ending theme to some shows.
And even though some shows are running "content" right up to the last second, a few NZ TV stations are still putting their crap over top. Or they show the credits, but for as long as the credits run the show if down to 1/4 screen, the credits are 1/4 screen, and the remaining half screen is advertising (for upcoming shows, but still advertising). And people buying adspace on these shows please note that 1) I intend to be very rich very soon and 2) I intend to never buy from companies who advertise on such shows.
