Bad Association: Video Overlay Fail

Austin Travel overlay on smoking building video

This YellowPages.com video overlay ad at Ustream TV and the Austin-American Statesman isn’t likely to develop an urge for Austin Travel among its viewers, as it is superimposed on a live feed from the smoking building after a plane crashed into it. Perhaps it’s not quite as bad as a Samsonite ad next to an article about a body being found in a suitcase.
