Anyone else seen this (attached)?

I'm all for supporting the site with it's minimalistic ads and am sure to click on them but this kind of advertising is foul.

EDIT:

If someone sees it again, can they do the following in this thread?
If you find a particular ad especially annoying (e.g., an ad that is oversized, obscures the page, moves around, or has sound), let us know by posting a screenshot in our Site and Forum Feedback forum and telling us the URL it links to. Using this information we can ask to have it removed from the ad pool.

I've just read the FAQ and if we get the url it seems we can have it removed from the ad pool. :)

Here's the url from the advert, which then forwards you on to the play.com site:

Terrible. Easily could end up being a deterrent that drives me away from the web site.....
