Are "Skittles" Advertisements Being Shown At The Beginning Of Videos Featuring The Trayvon Martin Story?
Oddly enough, in at least one case, the answer is yes. This article at Politico.com, as of today, is still showing advertisements for Skittles candies prior to a video of President Obama discussing the Trayvon Martin case. This is odd, considering that Trayvon Martin was said to be killed while carrying a package of the colored candies on his way home in February of this year. One has to wonder if Skittles just so happens to have a deal to advertise their products in Politico’s player or if this is contextual advertising gone wrong.
