I have noticed a few ads that had scrolling text from bottom to top, some branding on the side, and just played generic music. I believe this is attempt to actually have their message shown during a TIVO fast forward fest. If people don't fast forward, they still see the message too.

Not only will they watch it, they will want to watch it over, and over, and over. In marketing terms, talk about frequency!

Here in Toronto, local businesses are really putting an effort into making their advertisements unique and appealing.
