Audio advertisements?

83 22 August 9, 2019 at 07:18 PM
I was always a supporter of slickdeals by disabling adblock software on my browser but now I may need to rethink this. I come to the main page of slickdeals and I'm greeted by a full volume audio advertisement from L'Oreal that, to my knowledge, couldn't be muted. Even though it isn't a huge deal, this was the first time I've seen (or heard) this.

Kind of disheartening that one of the bigger affiliate sites on the internet has resorted to full audio ads. Oh well, adblock on again.

Thank you for reporting this! It does not seem like something we would allow. Have you seen these comments?

Yeah I've seen that before but in this case it wasn't any kind of malicious-esque type of ad since it was just a mascara ad from L'Oreal. Also it was just on PC and not mobile. Appreciate the reply though.

just to reiterate we definitely don't allow video ads so that's just one that snuck in. finzz notified the ad team so hopefully they'll be able to sort it out sooner, rather than later. sorry for the inconvenience and thanks again for the report!

"I've always had thin eyebrows..."

I didn't even hover over the ad and the sound started on it's own.
