I've been repeatedly served this ad and similar ones from "Vimeo", apparently a YouTube-like service. Is it just me, am I the only one who finds these ads deeply creepy?  In one of the banner ads, "dough-bot" slides into view from the left, and the text appears "Hey, stranger! Would you like blah blah blah?"

Naked man/dough-bot laying on a bed and saying "Hey Stranger"?????

If anyone has an explanation of what this 'character' is or is supposed to be, I'm all ears.

I haven't been this put off by an ad since Quizno's notorious "Spongmonkeys" campaign.

Photobucket ended free image hosting, so unfortunately I don't have a way to share the image with you.

Not much to go on, Vimeo is a source for commercial videos.

Do you have a brand name?  This is all I could find...

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

ShockedWow! A blast from the past!
Welcome back, Geezer - hope this finds you at only your best.
As far as free image hosting, Postimage is still available and a lot less likely to infect your computer.
