Yahoo has announced it's to run Web and Radio ads to U.S. markets in a new campaign to win search share.

These include the tag lines: "Switch to Yahoo Search and get straight answers", and on the radio, the now familiar "Yahooooooooo oooooooo!" call.

Just heard one of these last night. It was pretty funny and endearing actually. It compared a web site with malware in this girl's search results to a wild boar in the closet, and sold the solution: Yahoo! search with McAffe scanning built in.
The Yahooooooooo oooooooo! call brought back memories!

If Yahoo! can continue to make the commercials funny and memorable I can't see why they shouldn't do it - unless it becomes clear that it's a waste of money. Of course, that's the whole problem with radio ads isn't it, you can't be sure...
