Ad that is NSFW

I just saw a "short clip" type condom Ad on the Macrumors frontpage that's not 100% safe for work, specially in an open office environment...

I didn't watch the whole clip as I had to close the tab very quickly.

If you can get a screen shot of it and the linked URL, the site admins can look into having it removed.

Also from the forum FAQ:

What do I do about annoying ads?
MacRumors uses an advertising service that supplies ads from a pool. We do not select the specific ads shown or the specific advertisers who participate.

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.

If you find all ads annoying, remember that ads support the site and allow us to provide free news, rumors, and discussion, and that ads are suppressed for paid members. See How do I contribute to MacRumors.com? above.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence of timing, but I couldn't help noticing which Mod got to the post referencing condoms first.

Pure luck, I'm sure...

I "F5" the page whole day and no luck yet... I should have done a screencap very quickly. Sorry guys.

Maybe I will try at home.

The interesting thing is that the ad companies usually serve ads based on what they think the user will be interested in...

Yea... this is what I have been thinking the whole day.

I always browse in Firefox Private Browsing mode so there should not be any information of me and my browsing habits. Usually I only visit tech sites, gizmodo, engadget, here, and slashdot... (Facebook is blocked at work).

The Ads at the macrumors frontpage I see very often are i'm watch, ASUS, Symantec... then... only once for BMW.

I find it humorous when people post the odd auto-completion of google searches... google tailors your searches to past searches... so.... yeah...

Did you happen to get the URL as well? They'll need that too.

I did not click on that at that point (who knows where it will lead me to)... it's a flash video I cannot get a URL either.

Looks like a good advert. Will watch again.
