Bookmark This! Ispot.tv

I used to do a few little recurring features here and one of those things was finding an interesting website I thought was worth a mention. I get to revive that today with a note about one of my new favorites: Ispot.tv

I know that on the internet, most people are trying their hardest to avoid ads. They get in the way, interrupt your reading or viewing and generally are too loud, too obnoxious and too much to handle. But Ispot.tv is about commercials, typically seen on that quaint old-fashioned device: television. This is the first time I've promoted a "designed for" commercial site since that very unusual attempt at turning the old MTV style "VJ" format was created by firebrand.com specifically for TV ads, and another failed website that was supposed to be a shopping/entertainment website: honeyshed.com.

Unlike those sites, this one has no special gimmicks. Even though it's pretty straightforward, it maybe needs a bit of explanation. Ispot is designed to give statistical info re: who is watching an ad, and other useful stats for both advertisers and broadcasters. So it's not really meant for the general public in its designed form. But regular people are encouraged to come and find ads and view them there in HD quality, of course.

I think it's worth a a bookmark because they typically have every currently running commercial from a national campaign, and the bulk of regional commercials as well. It's kind of fun to see ads for things you wouldn't normally see in your market.

Additionally, if you register, you can make comments or ask questions, find out the name of a actor or a song featured in a commercial. Or you can just read the message boards of people who have signed up, if you want to stay anon.

The site is designed nicely, laying out the commercials by product type as you browse. And I'm sure there's probably some matrix that lets advertisers see who is viewing their ads on this site as well.

Give it a try!
