TBS isn’t afraid to interrupt your flow. Not at all.
According to Ad Age, TBS is using an “overlay” during episodes of “Family Guy” meant to promote “The Bill Engvall Show.”
Ad Age blames internet advertising for this development.
TBS’s chatty come-on offers yet another illustration of how consumers’ growing comfort with the way content is designed and displayed in digital venues is starting to affect the flow of advertising in more-traditional areas, particularly TV.
“I almost wonder if the ad overlays, which are becoming more and more ubiquitous on the digital video screen, are almost laying the groundwork for TV,” said John Moore, senior VP-director of ideas and innovation at Interpublic Group of Cos.’ Mullen.
