So How Did State Farm Get A Free Ad On Campaign Outsider?

When the hardworking staff went to grab this post to scale out on Twitter, we discovered this at the bottom:

No idea how it got there, no idea where it went (haven’t seen it again). Certainly haven’t seen any money for it.

What’s up with that?

    BULLETIN! BULLETIN! If it’s Saturday, Gail Collins must have a column in the Times that refers to Mitt Romney’s dog. Check. (A post to the column at nytimes.com mentions this).

      Thanks for the heads up, Laurence. Unfortunately, the comments were closed by the time I got a new post up.

  2. I don’t see that in my browser. If you’re still seeing it and want me to take a look, mail me the page’s html source – the answer may be in there.

    In related “news” – how did SaleLocator.com get a NEWS story in the 11 PM Thursday evening newscast? Nice 2-minute free commercial!

      Yeah, I saw that infomercial – nice gift. AS for the page’s html source – is that different from the link in the post? Thanks.

      • Go to the page where you see the ad. Go to the view menu, select “view source”. You’ll get a window with a bunch of html. Save it (as text) and send it along. There might be clues in there that will tell us where the ad came from.

      • Campaign Outsider says:

        The ad’s no longer there, Stephen, so would source info tell us anything now?

    Right now (Oct. 1, 2011 2:40 pm) there is an ad for the 2012 Hyundai Sonata below your “What’s up with that?”
