For those that read the dirt sheets this will surely not come as a surprise. TNA Impact Wrestling apparently according to many reports, bought (collective dirt sheet GASP!) advertising through local cable operators in the Huntsville, Alabama area tickets to this week’s taping and aired the commercial during WWE’s Monday’s RAW.
The sheets point out that TNA is obviously attempting to draw fans to their Thursday taping in Huntsville. Say what you will about the sheets, but there is no denying they have cracked TNA’s dastardly plot. Hopefully other businesses do not catch on and try to use advertising to give their product exposure as well. The next thing you know they’ll be airing ads on TV regularly, and we will have commercial breaks during programs.
In all seriousness, terms like “attempting to lure” and “in a desperate attempt” have been used by many sites covering this ad campaign. I suppose when your business model is pop up ads and blind links, a deep understanding of how business works is not to be expected.
On a related note, I just saw an ad for the Ford Fusion on tv, I wonder what Ford is up to?
