Expandable Banner Ads

This is one of the best examples I've seen of an expandable leaderboard ad. The interaction is a fluid user-controlled slide with a corresponding animated (pseudo-video) sequence. The only trouble with running something like this in Ireland is that almost all publishers have strict rules on expandable open and close interactions. Generally speaking it's either click-to-open-click-to-close or mouse-over-to-open-mouse-off-to-close, which almost certainly rules something like this out of the question. A pity really.

Check out these other expandables:
Sony PSP

Renault: Power Uphill
