Catfish Ad

A catfish ad appears (slides in or fades in) as a horizontal area at the bottom of a page. The term likely comes from the image of a catfish coming up to the water surface for air. The ad can be closed with a button. This ad type uses JavaScript/HTML code to slide ad content into the web page. It is also called a footer ad.
