    Ads Are Ads eh? hmm we’ll let’s see about that look at this: http://www.oddee.com/item_87332.aspx and get back to me

    nice try at being coy.. those examples are oxymoron like advertising kfc and the practise of safe sex have nothing in relation therefore it doesn’t really apply.

    like i said there’s nothign wrong with that ad placement

    Well played, but lemme ask you something, would you put up a KFC advertisement in a Sex store? It might not be an oxymoron but at the same time it wasn’t really well played to put a food advertisement beside a condom. And it’s natural for people to eat after sex, sex takes alot of energy food replenishes it

    the news paper isn’t a sex store.. end of story.. the youth link is for the youth. a diversified enough audience for them to advertise anything.. especially based on the fact that its with young curious kids who love to waste money. you notice the devices they’re advertising for kids to purchase, blackberry curves and what not for approximately 50k.. thats another story though

    bottom line is the adplacement is fine in my oppinion.

    I’m assuming the ad placement was not intentional, i found it wierd and so did other people…call me stupid; and i think you ment young rich kids:)
