I agree with Annoyed. The advertisers, sometimes in conjunction with the Web page programmers in the quest for eyeball time, have heaped this upon themselves. While animation and multimedia might be more eye catching and therefore be more effective, that only works to a certain point. Then you start to peeve the very people you’re trying to convince to part with their money. Peeved people are reluctant to part with their money, especially to the people whodunnit. It’s a constant leapfrog; popups, popunders, Flash, JavaScript and DOM tricks; Popzilla, native popup blocking, FlashBlock, NoScript, Stylish/Scriptish.
