Do you remember 5 or 6 years back when tv commercials would tell you the AOL keyword at the end of the ad? Maybe it wasn’t that long ago – I can’t remember. Well I am watching Scrubs (awesome show) and a commercial for Pontiac just came one and at the end they said “Google Pontiac to discover more” – but that’s not all! They actually took their car off of the screen you show you the Google search page where they were typing in the word “pontiac” – Yikes!!
It’s like Google has replaces AOL as the household internet name. I know most of us already knew this – but it’s just weird to see it seeping into the media. I had gotten so used to tuning out the AOL keyword parts of ads – and now it’s something new.
