Brighthouse Financial Annuity ad is DUMB and INTRUSIVE

When I open up SA I get this huge pop-up ad that can't be blocked or closed. At an investment site I don't need to be reminded that a Life Insurance agent will be happy to sell me an annuity and pocket 1/8 of my investment. It needs to be removed as it wrecks the SA experience

I agree 100% with Tom. The giant billboard that blocks 25% of my home page is beyond annoying. The fact that it advertises annuities just adds insult to injury.

Agree, I thought I might be the only one seeing that due to picking up some malware bug or something so been checking here.  That is horrible! Remove that kind of ad

At least provide an option to close it/minimize it. WOW.

First page block-out to advertise Premium and now this add taking up 30% of the screen.  What next?  Maybe mandatory purchase of decoder ring to get onto the sight- disgusting.

I agree.  Even with the video switched off, the ad takes up 1/3 of the screen.  I know SA is a business, but this will drive away users.
