The ad in question is from Microsoft, advertising Internet Explorer 8’s Privacy Browsing tool. It was online only, and titled O.M.G.I.G.P -“Oh My God I’m Going to Puke”.
The ad has since been pulled from Microsoft’s Better Browser website and its IE 8 channel on YouTube after outcry among users – starring former Superman actor, Dean Cain, it shows a woman vomiting after supposedly stumbling across porn on her husband’s computer.
You can still view the ad on this link. Be warned though, it IS offensive!
Calbert of the The Digital Point Forum was surprised to find the domain OMGIGP.com was still available – so he registered it. Interesting what people will do to make a name for themselves online!
