Area 54



These subterranean homesick aliens drive their blues away by shaking their moneymakers all night long at the dance floor famed for its debauchery all through the Milky Way. Only those on the A-list can get into this party (note: this includes pretty much any and all aliens).

If your wheels are anything less than a 14-valve plasma drive with 22-inch osmium rims, forget about crashing this venue. Situated in an unspecified UFO hangar somewhere in Roswell, this club's location is even more secret than its counterpart 'laboratory' close by. And if you have to ask where it is, you probably can't get in.

I love this blog spot. These lower my bills ads drive me crazy. I was actually hoping you'd write one about the clown that shakes the words off his legs. The way it is... there's a clown that has "New Rates" or "No SSN Required" or whatever on his legs. He walks out, shakes the words off his legs and walks back.

Anyway, do you know anywhere I can go to see the ads? Like a Lowermybills.com banner archive?

Just wanted to say this blog is awesome. I was trying to track down the history and art of lowermybills for a fake viral campaign to promote a new episode of our podcast show. Your site was not only helpful, it's FASCINATING! I'm hooked, thank you, and here are the terrifying results:

Poser: The clown ad is not something I've seen yet... will look out for it. You mean an archive of the fully animated ads? Sorry, they're probably available only in the hard drive of an AT-386 somewhere in LMB's basement dungeons!

Jack: Glad the blog could help :)

To Poser:

This place is a full archive of banner ads.

Dev2r:

There's an similar to the alien ads that has a dancing robot that does a similar jig to the alien's.

I actually think that LMB's ads are actually improving. I'm glad that they have graduated from the annoying dancing silhouettes and the equally annoying (but somewhat entertaining) crappily encoded dancing office whores to these new ads.

I find it funny when news stations plug something on their website and one of LMB's ads is smack dab on the page. Makes for great tv.

Have you seen the scary clown LMB ad? He walks up and shakes "calculate new payment" and "no SSN required" from his leg.

There's now one with a guy in a trench coat and bowler derby that's a pair of shades away from looking like he works for the CIA.

Eric: I've seen the dancing robot, but not the trenchcoat guy yet. The hurting never stops...

I've been archiving the actual flash files (and have submitted some to the advertico site). If you need/want screengrabs shoot me and email at whammy_02@hotmail.com

And another series of ads have debuted. There's one with this polor bear popping up on various sides of the ad and waves his paw hi in each move. It's actually not bad when it comes to LMB ads.

Sweet goodness... I'm glad that someone other than myself is about to go insane with frustration.

The LMB ads are literally so bad it is shocking... it's like the work of a 7-year-old flash designer using samples to design something weird and stupid for his friends.

They make me completely uncomfortable.

It's now almost December 2012, and still the assault of lowermybills banner ads (some animated, all intolerably, sometimes stomach-turningly ugly) goes on.

In recent days, I complained by email to customer care twice. On the third time, they blocked me. THEY blocked ME. I must go and lie down now. The irony is suffocating me.
