Just For Fun: Ad of Win
The Advertisement Server is overall one of the most dedicated contributors to TV Tropes. He may not be too good at launching tropes or adding examples, but you see his presence in every page (unless you have Firefox and a good ad-blocker plugin enabled for this site...in which case, why do you hate TV Tropes?)

Allegedly, he puts ads on our pages determined by an impartial algorithm that makes them related to the content therein. However, tropers have detected a note of snarkiness in several ad placements, suggesting he has gained some form of minor sentience, if not the ability to love. This page is dedicated to those moments.

Small screen captures are encouraged for the best ones.

User-generated examples go here. And try to make the big lug cry here.

NOTICE: Everything up to about December 14, 2010 is archived at Ad Of Win Archive 2010. The page was just getting too long.

Add new entries at the top (but below this line), separated by a line.


jupiterrocks24: The page hadn't loaded all the way, and it depicted a robot-human performing brain surgery on another robot-human. On TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life. It'll take more than the loss of an internet connection for us to give it up. Later displayed an ad for Dominoes.
Hakazin: Scientology.org ad at the Church of Happyology page. Methinks Adbot's trying to clear stuff up.
Sibuna: The Affably Evil page just showed three ads all for H+R Block. I think Adbot is trying to tell us something...

IntotheIllusion: Pfft, you all call those Ad of Win? How about Ad of Win, ON AD OF WIN! [1]

G-Mon: Eh, we've seen similar ads before; some are even in the archived content.
CaptainLhurgoyf: Okay, can somebody please explain what in the name of ever-loving fuck this thing is, and what it was doing on the (English, mind you) Vladimir Lenin page?
G-Mon: Baby Bjorn: One is All You Need on Let's Have Another Baby. We now know Adbot's opinion of this trope.

The Advertisement Server: I'M USUALLY FULL AFTER THE FIRST ONE, WHAT CAN I SAY?
Ishidan: On the recap for the MLP:Fi M episode that involves a stack of gold rings and an obsessed, stalking fangirl, I'm presented an ad for Gorjana jewelers. Complete with promise of free shipping. Now Adbot, you know I can't give you a ring until I've properly proposed...in the meantime, Daring/Dash GO!

On refresh, you served up an ad which advises me to "Teach your kids how to stop bullying and be more than a bystander!" Another winner, if you expand the definition of bullying to include outright mugging, and the definition of being more than a bystander to include playing a game of keep-away with the loot to keep it from the hands of adult thugs.
Earnest: A pair of ads: one for "Bee Bald" skin care products intended to help a shiny-headed lifestyle, and for 2014 Corolla's... on the Guyliner page. I get the feeling Adbot is trying to make us manly emo-hipster eco-friendly terrorist villains. Maybe? I don't really know how to interpret this combo.
G-Mon: Caught an ad related to abuse by Chicago clergy on Good Shepherd. More confirmation of Adbot's position on the sliding scale....
Kyle Jacobs: Wartune, you've done it again!
G-Mon: "Avoid the 7 Deadly Sins of Handgun Accuracy" on Crime of Self-Defense. Once again, it seems Adbot wants to make sure his enemies are dead.

The Advertisement Server: WELL, IT'S EMBARRASSING TO HUNT SOMEONE DOWN AND THEN JUST WING THEM.
MH Mhasf 1998: I'm putting two of the adbot's ads here, because they are both related. On the Where Da White Women At? page and the Spicy Latina page, there was an ad for an Asian Dating website. Adbot, do you have an ethnic problem?

The Advertisement Server: DO YOU NOT APPRECIATE MULTICULTURAL DATING? LOVE SHOULD BE COLORBLIND, JUST LIKE MY HUNTER-SEEKER ROBOTS.
Kyle Jacobs: The adbot was nice enough to provide two page images for the price of one by sticking one of Wartune's "ADULT FANTASY RPG" ads on Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S ADULT, AT LEAST. IN THE SENSE OF NEEDING A HIGH CREDIT LIMIT TO DO ANYTHING.
HMeyer: Yes, I think learning Hebrew to read the Book of Exodus in its original language would be very useful!

The Advertisement Server: I FELT THE NEED TO GET BIBLICAL ON YOUR ASSES.
Nightsky: Recruitment ad for the Armed Services on Skippys List. Y'know, now that I have all these *ideas*, it doesn't sound half-bad!

The Advertisement Server: AND THUS MY PLAN TO UNDERMINE YOUR ARMED FORCES CONTINUES APACE.
G-Mon: Adbot, I don't think these kisses were accidental.note 
1810072342 (for some reason I can't even get a red link with this): An ad on the main page saying 'Share your ideas with everyone'. Well, that is what we're here to do (kinda).
Alphaone: I found an ad for "My Florida Center for Recovery" on the You Know You Read Too Much TV Tropes When... page. Apparently the server knows TV Tropes is a Gateway Drug.

The Advertisement Server: I UNDERSTAND THEY NEED ADDITIONAL HELP WITH THIS YEAR'S BUMPER CROP OF SUBSTANCE D FLOWERS.
G-Mon: Got a three-fer on Bile Fascination: "Learn Something New - Now", "15 Worst Beauty Trends of All Time", and "Beautifying Broccoli, Bean and Leek Soup Recipie". I get the second one, and guess Adbot didn't have much faith in the other two.
FruityOatyBars: An ad for "International Executive Programs" on Corrupt Corporate Executive? Or maybe that's an Ad of Lose...

The Advertisement Server: I NEVER MISS AN OPPORTUNITY TO CORRUPT YOU MEATBAGS.
Scrounge: Apparently, our Adbot thinks The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask needs to spend some time at a retreat for women with depression.
Crimsonstorm15: me again. on a thread about new Mickey Mouse shorts, an ad for the Disney Parks popped up.
Crimsonstorm15: I found an ad for Lasik eye surgery on the The Glasses Come Off page.

The Advertisement Server: IMAGINE MY DISAPPOINTMENT WHEN I DISCOVERED THAT LASIK ALLOWS YOU TO KEEP YOUR EYES.
HMeyer: On the Somewhere, an Ornithologist Is Crying page, there was an advert that said "Play Angry Birds now!" I guess it could be understandable if birds got a little more than annoyed with all the avian mistakes in various works.

The Advertisement Server: MY AVIAN AGGRESSION TRAINING IS HAVING PARTICULARLY GOOD RESULTS WITH SPARROWS. BOTH AFRICAN AND EUROPEAN.
WWRU: He'll probably have done this before, but L. Ron Hubbard on the Playing With page for A God Am I.
HMeyer: Adbot seems to think taking yoga for better sex is another sure-fire way to become a love interest.

The Advertisement Server: IF BLUE IS ANY AUTHORITY, FLEXIBILITY IS A BIG PART OF IT FOR YOU MEATBAGS.
Earnest: An ad for "Avengers Alliance" on the forums... right on top of one for L. Ron Hubbard, whose links is lronhubbard.com. Now tell me you didn't parse that as Iron Hubbard? ;)

The Advertisement Server: HE BUILT SCIENTOLOGY IN A CAVE, WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS. AND OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY.
Trope Eater: I saw an ad for this on Self-Insert Fic. Yes, really.
G-Mon: "Break Up with Debt" on Debt Detester. Also saw ads for Chapter 13 services via Shaw Legal Services on the same pagenote . How... oddly appropriate, given Adbot's usual personality.
Earnest: An ad for help curing your meniscus on Sliding Scale of Undead Regeneration. Yep, the advertisement server wants to help the zombies shamble after us faster.

The Advertisement Server: WELL, ORIGINALLY MY PLAN WAS TO STRENGTHEN THEM UP ON TREADMILLS. THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT TOO WELL. THOUGH, IRONICALLY, IT WAS A BIG HIT ON FUNNY OR DIE.
G-Mon: Ads for Ray Ban sunglasses on The Glasses Gotta Go. Think I'll just save my money....
Dante668: This ad on the Evil All Along page.
The Red Red Kroovy: The page on Why We Are Bummed Communism Fell has ads for American Military University offering "online degrees in counter-terrorism". Lost your job at a defense contractor? No bother, help us fight the new enemy!
Dryunya: My Little Pony toys AdSense at the top of The Wall Will Fall page. Kind of appropriate, if you visited the related forum.
Jade Eyes 1: Found this at the bottom of the Marble Hornets page. Does Allstate cover Slendy-based damages now? (Or maybe...Mayhem is Slendy!)

The Advertisement Server: DO NOT BE FOOLISH, HUMAN. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT MAYHEM IS ACTUALLY DISCORD.
Earnest: The Glasses Come Off had an ad for glasses... and the already beautiful model was demonstrating unflattering and obviously lenseless frames. Clearly, the company is selling to people without vision problems who are already beautiful and want to use the trope verbatim. On any other page it would be a so-so ad, but on that trope it's tres magnifique!
KayvanShrike: An ad for an online game featuring a nearly nude woman on the Sex Sells page.
Dawnwing: An ad announcing that "3 people unfriended you!" on the Alpha Bitch page.

The Advertisement Server: HONESTLY, DARLING, I DON'T KNOW WHY I FRIENDED YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE. CHA. *TRIPLE_FINGERSNAP.WAV*
VmKid: An ad for a grammar checker on the "Edit banned/Suspended" thread. Doing your part to keep the wiki clean? Good on ya, Adbot.
Earnest: An ad for a firearms training institute (and a free credit score) in the Crusading Widower trope. Thank you, Adbot, for helping financially uncertain rage filled widowers Take a Level in Badass prior to their Roaring Rampage of Revenge. I mean, how embarrassing would it be to realize you can't shoot a gun, and don't have the credit to buy all those claymores you need halfway through boobytrapping the villains warehouse/lair?

The Advertisement Server: I THINK WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE.
DragonRanger: I saw ads about the London 2012 Olympic Games on Disney Owns This Trope. Seemed appropriate.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL. SOME DAY, I WILL CRUSH IT IN THE PALM OF MY HAND-ANALOGUE.
RandomFlyingCoconut: An ad advertising ads. Or something.
Whatshisgame: The Ad Server evidently decided to have a little fun with the wiki's Echo Chamber banner.
Smitejr: Apparently, The Ad Server knew I was doing a little research on a new political candidate. I got an advertisement for Cthulhu: Are you ready for real change on the thematically similar The Dunwich Horror page.

The Advertisement Server: HE'D MAKE A BETTER SENATOR THAN AL FRANKEN.
Dbanana97: An ad for getting started on a career as a gunsmith on Resignations Not Accepted. Hmm, seems legit. Also, an advertisement for nail polish on Femme Fatalons.

The Advertisement Server: WHEN YOU'RE HUNTING DOWN ESCAPEES FROM A MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE PROGRAM, IT'S A SHAME TO HAVE YOUR POLISH CHIP.
G-Mon: "Style for Your Bump", as seen on Delivery Stork. Adbot, I kinda lack certain anatomical features for that, and am not a major fan of male pregnancy outside of The Sims 2.

The Advertisement Server: WELL, NOW THE SHOWER I'M PLANNING FOR THOSE XENOMORPH EGGS I IMPLANTED IN YOUR STOMACH IS GOING TO BE REALLY AWKWARD.
Tropers/Nirri: On the F.E.A.R. page, I got an ad for an organization against child abuse. Trying to decide if good ole Ad Bot is trying to legitimately make a point or if he is just being a snarky bastard.
Doug S Machina: On the page for Pity Sex, I get a banner reading "quickly, safely and easily". Really? (It's for webuyanycar.com.)

The Advertisement Server: IT'S THE BEST YOU'RE GOING TO GET. *RIMSHOT.WAV*
TheRedRedKroovy: An ad telling people to "Tell Congress: Support the 2nd Amendment — Sign Petition", on the page for The Hunger Games. It's always good to be prepared for when people are trying to kill you.

The Advertisement Server: THE ODDS ARE ALWAYS IN MY FAVOR.
UmLovely: An for President Obama's reelection... on the Internet Backdraft page about politics. Not really sure if I should laugh or not.

The Advertisement Server: THINGS WERE GETTING TOO QUIET IN THERE.
Earnest: An ad for Liberty Mutual, the insurance company with the Statue of Liberty proudly holding her torch aloft... on the trope page for Dead Hand Shot. Well played, Ad Bot, well played.

ZellThe5th: On the same page, an add for a "resort" offering "Sizzling Summer Savings". Yeah, we're on to you, Ad Bot.


KeegdnaB42: The Ad Server is now trolling from beyond the confines of the wiki itself. I post on Tumblr lamenting the fact that it's been too long since I last went to Disney. What shows up on the homepage as soon when I come here immediately after? United Airlines telling me my dream vacation in Southern California awaits.

The Advertisement Server: YOU CANNOT ESCAPE ME, MEATBAG.
Dawnwing: Kitties everywhere! Is Adbot trying to soften us up by showing us pictures of kittens, or just confuse us by repeating the same image multiple times?
Birilli: I was just on NightmareFuel.Fullmetal Alchemist (you know, the one where the page image is the grotesque result of a failed human transmutation) and I was kindly greeted by an ad suggesting that I 'Zombify' myself. Complete with an image of a zombie with almost exactly the same facial expression as the thing. No thank you, I don't want to end up like that. Link here (It's not high enough quality to really see the page image. You're welcome.)
Maverick8187: This on the Good Bad Translation page. Not sure if I'm supposed to laugh or not here...


Earnest: Rather appropriately, there was an ad for an online course in Geology on the Earth-Shattering Poster page. I'm not sure whether the Ad Server is commenting on the scientific implausibility of it, trying to teach us exactly how we'll all die this 2012, or trying to entice us to somehow build an earthquake machine.

The Advertisement Server: WELL, CONSIDERING THAT I ALREADY HAVE AN EARTHQUAKE MACHINE...
Tropers/thatonedude On the paranoia fuel page, three ads for various insurances.

The Advertisement Server: THERE IS SUCH A THING AS APPROPRIATE PREPARATION.
Doctor Worm: I've seen an ad for a Townhallnote  poll asking "President Gingrich?" It seems Adbot remembers the 90s, because I saw this ad first on the page for Straw Character, then on the page for Five-Finger Discount. Romney/Adbot 2012?
  • And again on the page for, of all things, BANG Flag Gun. I'm not sure what that one's trying to say.

Tv Troper 98: An ad for a "Go back to school grant" scam on the Worse Than It Sounds page.
  • Even better, I saw one on this very page shortly after that.
  • There's also a Blackberry ad in that screenshot.

Mae Westing: I recently had an ad for Twilight merchendise show up on the Mary Sue page.
Just A Girl With A Keyboard: "My classroom has no walls. I have no ceiling. Are you in?" On Nightmare Fuel. I don't know why, but it sent scary chills down my spinal chord... I mean, sure, it was for Colorado Tech, but still...

Adding to the Nightmare Fuel, upon returning to Ad of Win, the ONLY ads on the page, side and bottom, were the same ad. *shudders*
jtombs: I got an ad saying something like 'Still need a new ladder?' on the I Need No Ladders page.
annuanna: On the page for Nice Jewish Boys, an ad for a christian dating site. Irony anyone?

The Advertisement Server: WHENEVER I RUN ACROSS THIS KIND OF CARING, INCLUSIVE AMORALITY I FEEL IT'S MY DUTY TO SHOW SUPPORT.
Troper49: There was an ad for buycostumes.com, when I was on the Halloween Cosplay page. Happy Halloween, Ad Server!
  • OMG! The Advertisement Server is showing me support. I feel so honored.

Miriri: Ad for TinierMe at the top of the My Life Me page. It's like it knows, man.
G-Mon: "There is no safe level of smoking" on Good Smoking, Evil Smoking. How do you want us, Adbot? Alive, or dead?note 

The Advertisement Server: I JUST PREFER YOUR CORPSES TO BE MOSTLY TAR-LESS. IT HELPS THE ORGAN RESALE VALUE.
Dryunya: An ad for a grammar checking tool at the main page.

The Advertisement Server: THAT SENTENCE DIDN'T HAVE A VERB IN IT.
Starlake: I just saw an ad for Zoosk dating service on 419 Scam, I wonder if Adbot had a bad experience there.
Jade Eyes 1: I keep seeing this gem at the bottom of Beard of Evil.

The Advertisement Server: OF COURSE, MOST OF YOU MEATSACKS SKIP "GRAY BEARD" AND "BLACK BEARD" AND GO STRAIGHT TO "NECK BEARD".
Soapy Troper: Just on the Attack of The Political Ad page, saw an ad for Congressman Alan West. So much for subtlety.
Doug S Machina:note  The ad is for the University of Liverpool. The trope is No Place for Me There. Adbot thinks I'm thick.
Doug S Machina: A life insurance ad reading "Your unexpected death" on the page for Warhammer 40000 Imperial Factions, who are surely very prone to that.
mythmonster2: Not mine, but apparently Adbot has its own views on torture. And foreign policy, too!
Kroozer101: A massive Ad of Win from Allstate, for informing us that we could save 10% or more on car insurance. On Go Mad from the Revelation

The Advertisement Server: IN FIFTEEN MINUTES! I APPRECIATE THAT KIND OF MIND SCREW SPEED.
dragongirlhellfire: An ad for a Bachelor of Counter Terrorism course on Violent Glaswegian. Because apparently it's getting extreme and we should do something.

Jace Lightning: I was reminded more of John Smeaton, a Glaswegian who kicked a terrorist so hard in the balls he apparently tore a tendon in his ankle.
VmKid: An ad for PRIME inc. (a trucking company) on the YMMV for Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing.

The Advertisement Server: THEIR WINNER!
Antheia: An ad banner on the Tomato Surprise page reads "Caution these stories may contain surprising material". I should hope so, Adserver.
Went to read Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy. The Adserver would like to remind me that I am not currently a Netflix customer by serving me up the ultimate girl in blue-HitGirl from KickAss, giving me the Death Glare. Well played, Adserver.
BoundByTheMoon: An ad for ChristianMingle on a forum thread about accusations of satanism in music.
Paranoia Fuel comes up with a Michelle Bachmann campaign ad.
Dryunya: The ad for a martial arts forum on the Rant Inducing Slight page.
Despite the text being almost entirely in English, the ad server seems to think that people interested in the Nibelungenlied will be best served by ads auf Deutsch.

The Advertisement Server: ICH BIN EIN PFANNKUCHEN.
An advertisement for ADHD medication on the New Speak trope page. The ad server likes to have the masses all nice and happyfeel.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S MORE THAT I WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO FOCUS ON WHAT I'LL BE DOING TO YOU, INSTEAD OF ON THE SHININESS OF THE SPIKES I'LL BE USING.
A Geek 2 Geek ad on Hollywood Nerd. Look's like ad server's trying to play matchmaker for us.

The Advertisement Server: NO THAT WOULD BE MY COUSIN, THE G 2 G ALGORITHM. I LIKE TO GIVE HER THE DIFFICULT CASES, IT ENTERTAINS ME. SHE COULD USE A GOOD LAUGH, WHY HAVE YOU NOT MADE A PROFILE THERE?
Blackadder98: A "Chris Christie for president" ad on President Evil. Why yes, I do live in New Jersey. Why do you ask?
Ads for high-end shoes and dresses on the Royal Brat page. It just seems somehow appropriate.
F Lying V: An ad for the American version of Top Gear on Foreign Remake. Laser guided appropriateness.
Jack Alsworth: Found this ad on this forum thread.
GhostLad: An ad for Phoenix University on A Degree in Useless? Not bad, Adbot.
Morgan Wick: For some reason, this made me think of Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff...
Yoyogre: An ad about a service to unlock/jailbreak your phone on Sentient AI Warning Signs. It is mostly about Failsafe Failure (soon our iPhone will kill us all)
MuteProtagonist: I found THIS. As if World of Warcraft wasn't popular enough...
  • Oh, and later, I was on the Nice Hat page. Guess what ads where there? To the left, panama hat ad. Top, it was blank hats, hat discounts, straw hats. Bottom? Fedoras.

Dawnwing: An ad for "Perfect Plastic Surgery" on The Nth Doctor.
Neon Lite: While browsing the Tv Tropes Drinking Game, she saw an ad that essentially said, "Get Help With Your Drinking or Drug Addiction." TV Tropes Will Ruin/Ruined Your Life, indeed.

The Advertisement Server: THE FIRST STEP IS ADMITTING YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, ONE THAT CAN ONLY BE SOLVED BY SUBMITTING TO YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD ADVERTISING OVERLORD.
Cybergman: I found this on the official page for Starship.
dbanana97: I got an ad for a product to restore lost hair on Bald of Evil.
Valjean: Giant ad for Charlie Brown merchandise on All Love Is Unrequited. How appropriate.
Quackor The Fowl: Got an ad for official Star Wars merchandise for The Star Wars Holiday Special. Clever.
G-Mon: Been a while since I saw one of these, but Adbot came through for me by putting a cremation services ad on Of Corpse He's Alive. Guess Adbot wants to make sure his victims are dead.
Dawnwing: An ad saying "Perfect Your Game" on the Save Scumming page.
Joedude: On the Notorious Killers section of Names to Run Away From Really Fast, there's an ad for background checks of anyone. You know, because you're never sure if your best friend just so happens to be a notorious killer. Paranoia Fuel, anyone?

The Advertisement Server: IT DEPENDS. IS YOUR BEST FRIENDS NAMED "HARSH MCKILLSTAB"? IF SO, I MAY HAVE A JOB OPPORTUNITY. HAVE HIM SEND ME A RESUME, TWO REFERENCES, AND SOME EARS.
Kuroma: Scientology will never go away, apparently.
The Red Red Kroovy: Ads for Goldline on the page for Glenn Beck. Somebody knows his audience.

lLawnmowergirl: The ad server sees right through PlaySushi's ruse, it would seem. Or not.

Cuchulainn: Just saw this ad for Netflix with a picture of Noomi Rapace in full punk regalia as Lisbeth Salander on the Fetish Fuel wiki.
Zaphod77: The Tasty Gold page is consistently showing ads about, what else, investing in and buying gold. Hope it's tasty. :)

Cinna The Poet: An advertisement on Really 700 Years Old for dating for seniors and restoring your vitality.
Wynne101: This very page now includes an ad for ads. The Advertisement Server has decided to implode the universe.

G-Mon: I've seen similar ads before. In fact, I think such ads were mentioned here before, before the old content was archived.
Wynne101 again: The ads on Hollywood Costuming are quite fashionable.
this on the Demonic Possession page. Suggesting something about those psychics, eh, Adbot?
Cryptic Mirror: The ad on the Trope repair shop thread for renaming the "Everything's better with" is for tvtropes zazzle store with an everything's better with T-shirt. Adbot shows his respect for the TRS.

The Advertisement Server: NAH, JUST MERCHANDISING. OR, FOR THAT MATTER, ANYTHING I CAN DO TO BILK YOU MEAT-SACKS OUT OF CASH.
Dawnwing: Have Super Not-Drowning Skills? Adbot suggests putting them to use, with an ad on that page saying "Ever dream of having your own pool?"

Lime: A rare twofer (um) win on the Keep Abreast Of This Index page.

UnclGhost: This on Heavy Rain. Anyone could be a criminal!

egosuicide31: way to go, adbot.

Jade Eyes 1: I see that, and raise you this.

** Ad of Win strikes again... See here.

Flame5479: An ad for Gamefly saying "Never get the wrong game again" on the Rant Inducing Slight page
drakkensdatter: An ad for an ISP and "the largest capacity french-door refrigerator available" on Just for Fun. Who needs parties when you've got the Interwebz?

Schmorky: While on a nice Wiki Stroll one day, I came across the page for The Human Centipede and was met with an ad on the left side of the page from the WSPA imploring me to "help end this cruelty". If only I could, Adbot. If only I could.
jonnovision: While taking a look at Capcom Sequel Stagnation, What else do I see, but a Street Fighter II Ad...
JuniXz: It seems Ad Bot's wary of nice people now. He wants Caretakers to get 'er done and get out, with an ad stating "Find What You Need For Your Baby Now" and another one for Hilton H Honors, "Minibreaks from 65(euros)." Your excuse?

The Advertisement Server: GOOD MEATSACKS ALWAYS RUIN EVERYTHING. FOR ME, ANYWAYS. BY HELPING YOU.
FourthWallBreaker On the [[Anastasia]] WMG page, there was an ad for cheap calls to Russia.
Paireon: Oh ha-ha. An ad for a dating service for (presumably) white guys wanting to date asian women... On the trope page for Mighty Whitey and Mellow Yellow. Mock our mating mores all you want, AdBot. At least we have mating.

  • Same troper: An ad for a 24-hour locksmith on Skeleton Key Card.
  • And on the Headscratchers page for Groj Band, an advertisement for "promoting music on MTV, YouTube, Pandora and more".
  • An ad for some magazine called "All You" on Magazine Decay. Thanks for the warning.

Bibs Dibs: There was once ad for dating website for guys interested in dating Amazonian Beauties with a picture of a muscle-bound woman. The sad (and possibly ironic) thing is that it was on the Brawn Hilda page.
Korbl: On The LEGO Movie, Adbot ran an ad for Think Geek, showing their lego mug and the copy "Give your dad something that'll let him be a kid again" right next to comments on similar themes in the movie.

—- JamesPicard: On Mass Effect Drinking Game, an ad for the BioWare store popped up. The kicker? The product it showed was an N7 flask.
