[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AdOfLose_3100.jpg This ad]] on PaedoHunt could arguably be either this or an AdOfWin, but I opted for Ad of Lose for the "missing the point" aspect.

{{Tropers/AFP}}: Banners for a Vietnamese Dating site. On the page for WeWereSoldiers, a movie about an intense three day battle between American Air Cavalry troops and the North Vietnamese Army.

* @/MorganWick: Not only are they incredibly annoying (it plays if I'm just careless with the mouse cursor as I'm moving it from the tab bar to the main window), the music itself is the worst kind of bubblegum pop with the lyrics in the short snippet being just the same two lines repeated over and over, which is hardly the best way to advertise them unless you like SouljaBoy... and worse, ''[[EarWorm I can't get the damn thing out of my head!!!]]'' It doesn't help that there's a typo on at least some of the ads that just makes me think of [[MemeticMutation OM NOM NOM NOM]].

@/{{Kimura}}: What is this I don't even... Adbot is [DATA EXPUNGED BY ORDER OF THE [[HoYay HO YAY]] COMMUNITY]... That's actually an AdOfWin... on the Ad Of Lose page... can anyone say "divide by zero"?

DarthWiki/{{Cliche}}: Bringing browser wars into this is a MadeOfLose in itself.

C.: There's a good chance the ads were referring to the NewMoon movie.

[[Tropers/{{ptitlepgy6ymio}} 0dd1]]: AdOfWin, however, for an ad for the Podcast/{{Rifftrax}} of ''Twilight'' showing up on there!

@/GreatPikminFan: Another one, even worse. After getting used to ''Fanfic/WilliamCountry'' and finding it SoBadItsGood, I check the page out, and what do I get? ''Aklo: lovecraft music.'' Um... What the hell? I finaly got used to a fan film and now it's being compared to a cosmic horror story? If I hadn't seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXDyTjxok2s this]] yet, nor had I checked out Horrible/FanficDiscussion, it would be an AdOfWin.

@/ThinksTooMuch: Please tell me there is no good reason for a freaking ''HelloKitty'' advertisement to be on the ''TroperTales/PerverseSexualLustLiterature'' page. [[{{Squick}} Please.]]

@/SeanTucker: Considering their recent output (non-Pixar), I'd have to call this an AdOfWin.

@/ARandomSerf: I am currently staring at a scientology ad. On which page, might you ask? AdOfWin. For shame, Adbot.

Tropers/{{Pichu-kun}}: This troper was on KhaosKomix page when he saw an ad he had never seen before. "Tranny Date.com" Considering this troper is a {{Transsexual}} and the fact it's an obnoxiously offensive seeming site. Plus considering the page.

* Tropers/{{Xterra}}: To me, all ads are [[MadeOfLose]]. Don't get me wrong, I do not hate Wiki/TVTropes in any way but I'm really thanking the dear Lord above that I've got a browser with a built-in, modular ad blocker (Maxthon if you're wondering).

* hydrix: An ad that says that you can now have German [[VoiceOverTranslation Voice Over Translations]] of Dutch and Belgian works on the SoBadItsHorrible: Horrible/VoiceActing page. Do the advertisers want the company they are advertising for to crash?

@/OuttaTheBLAM: Getting the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meetREALguysthatlooklikedouchebags_6637.jpg Meet REAL Guys]] ad on the page for JerseyShore. They look like they could be cast in the show.

@/MorphinBrony: Browsing a Blogspot blog, I came across some ads for [=DirecTV=] in Korean. I live in and have never set foot outside of the United States, I am of German heritage (but I am primarily British by blood), I have never spoken a word of Korean in my life, and the only exposure to Korean culture I have had is Music/GangnamStyle. Also, I am a Dish customer.

Tropers/{{Somfin}}: That ad for Thekissinggames.com. The one that features three teenage characters, and the definitely underage DoraTheExplorer. Fucking creepy.

@/NeoCrimson: Seeing an ad for "punky hair dyes" right after slogging through the MyImmortal page. Way to kick a guy while he's down Adbot.

@/FeoTakahari: So you have an ad for a book called ''[[ForgottenRealms Elminster]] Must Die'', and it shows up all over the wiki, but it ''doesn't'' appear on GodModeSue? What a spectacularly missed opportunity.
