Alien cow abduction is a serious problem. Countless bovines have disappeared from dairy farms everywhere. And the numbers of missng cows are on the rise. (Maybe show your support for the cause with this stylish clock?)

Wow, I actually saw that advertised on fark.com (a banner ad and everything) and thought about posting it to mefi with the commentary "how lame have virals gotten?" But then I decided against it.

It's obviously an expensive viral, but it's actually rather annoying. What the hell are they trying to market? I'll probably never know or care, so they obviously failed in their mission.

That clock would look GREAT in my house!

Definitely since I didn't even realize it was a viral ad... I feel so dirty! I guess there's a lot of money in... milk?

Robot Johnny, hilarious FPP, I liked the guy who put antlers on the cows to disguise them.

I laughed so hard milk came out my nose.

Brought to you by The California Milk Processor Board.

I started looking through it before reading the comments, and I thought, "This is pretty funny, but why is it all in Flash?" Then I got to the FAQ and saw the blaringly obvious "Mark, can you produce a deliciously frothy drink that helps maintain strong bones, helps reduce the risk of cavities," etc. etc.

Still funny, though. I love the "Cow Crow," despite its name.

Alien cows are being abducted? Someone alert the authorities on whatever planet these cows happen to be from. NIMBY.

Awesome. This is the sort of viral advertising that will earn my early-20s discretionary income spending dollars.

I shall rustle up the $$ to purchase the clock. It is the least I can do to deter alien depredations.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who wants that clock.

Sixty-five bucks, though? Dayum.

I sent this to a professor/dairy farmer I know. Pretty funny. What clock are you guys talking about?
