In Game Solar Panel AdvertisemenT

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

About half of any given month, I am in a different city overnight.  In every city, when you begin the game, it loads local information, so that you receive a somewhat targeted advertisement in the short videos.  Every city I go to, the guy with glasses talking about the free solar panels pops up and it is specific to the city I am in.  I can't imagine how many times that guy had to make the same opening speech with a different city name!

I work in solar and have seen this ad...it's also extremely bad practice / unethical / misleading in our industry to advertise "free solar." Solar isn't free, ever.

I'm not sure how the video ends as I watch my mandatory 4 or 5 seconds and move on!

He did a new one with a bigger and more perfectly oval head.  Now repeat with different cities 10 millions times.  LOL.

Just started seeing some new ads with this guy’s giant pumpkin head.  Seemed well timed with Update 15 Halloween Mode.    Coincidence?  I think not.

I think, as much as I can see in the 4 second minimum time requirement, this guy is standing next to Apartments, rambling about home solar.  Anyone back this up?
