When do people WANT advertising?

Advertising has gotten entertaining enough today that some people actually want to watch some ads over and over again (upto a point).

Let's face it, there are times in our lives when we're so damn bored, we would welcome any form of entertainment, even (especially?) if it's advertising. Not convinced? How about:

1. Waiting for the bus

3. Waiting to check out at the supermarket

4. Stuck in traffic

5. When you're er, um…

OK, the last one was just a joke!

But seriously, how about getting across to people at times and places when they are likely to be more receptive, instead of just bombarding the TV airwaves?
