Ask's new AD campaign.

Derogative against google!

The new ad shows someone searching for music and looks like you can demo songs / see popular tracks and also a mouse over preview etc.

Then it shows google serps (looking bland) with no sound or anything and goes "Does yours do this?"

I would think google would have something to say about that.

What can Google say? Ask isn't saying anything untrue, it's simply making a comparison of features.

I actually like the commercials. They are trying to set themselves apart from other engines which is smart.

the ad's are pretty cool, whether there sufficient to pull visitors from G / Y / MSN is another matter. Then the bigger question has to be the relevance of what they are delivering!

Those were great ads. I loved it. Ask made it's point elegantly. Reminded me of the Apple ads, except it wasn't exagerrated nor featured smug people.

Some of my sites have done very well from Ask over the last month, better than they've ever done from Google in fact, so perhaps their ads are working!
