After a revolutionary surgery, a man who was born blind receives his sight for the first time. As he tearfully admires the beauty of a tree in moonlight, an advertisement for an advertising service that projects images onto the moon occludes part of his vision. This advertisement implant was a consequence of a discounted surgery which his insurance required him to accept.

The problem of advertising has already been well-explored in writing, and this story tends toward comedy. It simply brings the reader to groan over the all-pervasiveness of adds, even on purchased devices. How far will we tumble into the abyss of effective advertisement? These discounted products, after all, carry seriously distracting drawbacks.
