    No, that was my fault, I screwed up the link in the OP...I added the word "and" to the end of the URL by accident.

    But even crazier is that there is an actual company advertising on birds! Just search Bird Flight Media and watch the 1:15 video...

    I think this might actually be a good idea. Imagine a guy who's going to have sex and never uses protection, a bird passes him by and on the bird there's this advertisement, "Protect your junk before you bump". And this advertisement makes him contemplate his decision. Another fatherless child is saved from being born!
