I though this ad had a nice relevant interaction. Objective: Most users run into barriers when navigating the Internet. This ad demonstrates that obstacles can prevent the net from being accessible to all.

I believe the idea is everything, and this idea is simply great.

interesting banner...

I love the style and the sentiment, a great ad. I have a few nitpicks about the functionality (why a button totally separate from the scrollbar?), but those are minor. I like!

I can't help feeling like it's a bit derogatory.

Your website should be a barrier free zone. It's a tick in the box, yet (unfortunately) for so many it isn't. Don't personally think it's something you would advertise. Also, it falls down because the first interaction required with the ad isn't apparent. I tried to use the scroll bar first.

Playful execution, but a weak message overall.

i ran into a barrier when the scrollbar didn't work (is that intentional)?

boring overall as it wasn't immediate enough.

Think, people. The funky functionality is very likely purposeful, considering the subject matter. If you tried to use the scroll bar and it didn't work for you, you spent a couple more seconds on the banner to figure out what was going on. That means it worked on you.

Of course the production could be better than this, but the idea is simple and smart. Very good!

But then, at the end, the cursors are noticeably blocked in. They should be able to exit the banner in the end (whether "off-stage" or over the content).
