Why do Myspace Ads Suck?

I have no idea if these ads are a global buy or are only being served for my IP but I have only 2 real brands advertising on Myspace.com. Those being Dell and Virgin Blue) Aside from the plethora of "brand" profiles there doesn't seem to be any real campaigns running/

Below is one of the of the quality ads I've been served while exploring the wonder that is Myspace.com.

Revenue aside isn't it in the best interest of Myspace sales people to show how advertisers have jumped onto the Myspace revolution? Or is this the only ad money they can attract. Scam ads to win iPods and Spyware.

I clicked this to be enlightend and it told me to install "Starware" to get the latest gossip. Excellent sounds harmless to me :)

This is my fav though. I clicked and unfortunately no horny gamer girls looking for fun to be seen :( My search continues for chicks that like to frag.

Maybe Myspace set a cookie that flagged me as gullible but after the Horny Gamer girls, between a new ad for a HP printer I'm shown this beauty.

It's like when you're watching late night TV and there's ads for rug sales, ringtones and sex chat lines.

This article on the the $900 million dollar Google deal explains a little why advertisers are reluctant to use display advertising on Myspace.
