    Was watching a YouTube video tonight and noticed this terribly formatted ad. [​IMG] How does that even get approved? This is what the ad is supposed to look like. [​IMG] How is that even close?

    Watching "Call Me Maybe" and then the ad that Google proposes is... "Acne". Acne... seriously?

    It's hard to believe that ad was so unfocused and sloppy formatting like that Marusia. The
    person is throwing their money into the wind. Like you said, seems like someone at Youtube would have checked and rejected it.

    Maybe it was misplaced and it was meant to be on the video?

    Does it look like a marketing hype? I am confused how You Tube can approve it? Lolz I cannot stop giggling over it :)

    What I think is that they created the ad for a normal banner: 468x60 or 728x90 but you have to option to select all formats and the idiot that is managing those ads just selected "use for all formats" and didn't check the result on a 300x225.
    My 2 cents. Video is funny as hell though
