Random Contextual Advertising Failures

Zoliblog posted some interesting and very inappropriate contextual advertising blunders found in a CNN.com article a while ago. Check it out the post on zoliblog.com.

Also posted a little while ago but non the less interesting was this post I found on the most respectable blog Mashable.com. Remember all the loose bodyparts (espescially feet) washing up on the American east coasts? Follow the link to read the whole story on Mashable.com. Warning: don’t read during lunch 🙂

And some more examples of contextual advertising gone wrong. This time in combination with online video. Find out more on faulty video ads on Onlinevideowatch.com.
