Luckily, the ads that are misplaced on television usually are not preserved for posterity. The absolutely worst, cringe producing combination I ever saw occured during the airing of a miniseries called "Holocaust" during the late 1970's. During the commercial break following a concentration camp scene, the first ad was for "Easy Off" oven cleaner. I was watching with about 20 other people in a college dorm TV lounge. The collective intake of breath could have changed the local barometric pressure.

Thats some good stuff there! I think you'll see a lot of those like the screenshots of webpages with adds next to articles. The google add servers look at the text of the webpage and supply adds using keywords. Its not smart enough to understand the context of the text, just the words.
