Banner ads, just like all other forms of advertising have a tough time breaking through the clutter.

See the demo here. Essentially, a vertical banner has been broken into two halves. The top half is a ‘fake’ ad in which the character reacts to the flame from the Zippo ad, down below.

Some more cool online ads are here.
