shoppers stop web ad on rediff

Take a look at the above ad of Shoppers stop that is featured on rediff today. Clearly the ad agency hasn’t understood how web advertising works. Instead of designing a campaign that would engage users online, encourage them to click, read-up and sign-up or subscribe, they just choose to replicate a news paper ad’s jpg online and hoped that it would work. I cant imagine a superior way to waste money. Comments?
