Very cool & creative ad. Way to push the envelope.

Interesting stuff. The results tie up with the Sixt ASCII rental car ads, which claimed a 47% increase in click-thru.

Higher CTRs are great but it would be interesting to see what those clicks are doing once they get to the page. I feel like they would need a huge cheesy heart rate monitor graphic to keep everyone from insta-bouncing

What fun!   It’s definitely a fun idea, but bad businesses sense. Increasing clicks is a poor way to manage paid search.   It may be nice to try now and then, but if you did that long term (even if Google allowed it), you would be wasting money.

Did these convert into sales, leads or anything? Or just bounce traffic?
