Why don't they just invent something like a facehugger but for adverts?

It clamps itself to your face, forces your eyelids open, and then shows you the commercial. Earbuds are drilled into your ears with the volume on max to make sure you hear the advert. After the advert has been shown to you and you agree to purchase the product in question, the facehugger drops off your face and dies, its mission complete.

So most users skip ads before a second has passed, and Snap thinks the solution is to make the ads unskippable. Jesus this company is dumb, which might be why no one really uses Snapchat anymore.

After instagram introduced stories I have no idea why people still even bother with snapchat. Uninstalled it along with FB ages ago.
