Yet another cursor trick, although this on has a nice fun side to it. I'm skeptical that banners of this kind would get any higher clicks or brand awareness ratings than a standard GIF/JPEG would, since you only get the fun part on rollover (when you are obstensibly already interested.) Perhaps if the cursor w/ wagging tail was used as an attract animation as well?

nice - except that it's a poor rip off of a cannes shortlisted entry from 2002/3: a bit like mcfly doing a danzig cover.

It's all about the placement for these types of ads and the accidental rollover that grabs the users attention. Worth doing as part of a larger ad campaign.

It's making my cursor blink which is all kinds of distracting annoyance. I have a feeling it's going to give users the feeling that the website this banner's on is breaking their computer or giving them a virus or some thing.
