It’s annoying when a website outsmarts your ad-blocking tactics, but it’s a little less annoying when they sprinkle some wit on it. For many users who have installed ad-blocking softwares, visits to Netflix might be met with a special ‘Black Mirror‘ ad, such as a message that spookily reads “You cannot see the ad. But the ad can see you.” The stunt effectively uses one stone to kill two birds: overcoming ad-blockers and advertising for the Netflix series ‘Black Mirror,’ a satirical sci-fi thriller that taps into the collective unease of our modern world and its technological advancements. Now, will anyone develop an ad-blocker-blocker-blocker?
