I’ve always had a problem with adverts.

In recent years, this has been compounded by the rise of targeted ads, whereby companies obtain your personal details Рincluding your likes, dislikes and your preference of who to shag Рand turn you into a demographic.  This allows them to advertise to what they believe you want, enabling them to streamline the process by which they can fleece you.

Personally, I’m sick of it and enjoy making life as difficult as possible for these cynical, cynical bastards.

Recently however, I’ve been deriving some amusement from these attempts to profile me as they become ever more bamboozling.

Tonight I was watching the video for Personal Jesus, which, to the best of my knowledge, is a song about prostitutes.

It’s a pretty old song and it’s a pretty good one, so I imagine a lot of people have heard it or are at least aware of it.

Not Google apparently.

I think the fact it’s specifically Christian dating is what makes this so funny, at least to me.

Any advertisers reading this, take note: As it happens, I am single and I am a Depeche Mode fan, but I’m not a Christian. ¬†Perhaps you could try a bit harder in future. I won’t buy whatever shitty product you’re flogging, but at least I won’t mock your efforts on my website.
