They Don't Approve THIS Message!
Modern technology! Just when you think you've got it mastered, it sneaks up and gets ya. Which seems to be how John McCain campaign ads this week ended up plastered online ..... right next to trailers for a Sarah Palin porno parody.
On Monday, the first minute of the movie -- with the cheap rhyming title you'd expect -- went online, the only part of the adult flick advertised as suitable for watching on office computers. The story of "Seera Paylin" -- played by look-alike Lisa Ann -- and two randy Russians is as tasteful and nuanced as you'd expect from Hustler, which produced the video. The only surprise? That "McCain-Palin 2008" ad on some Web sites that posted the clip (we found it on Starpulse.com, an entertainment news blog), which links to the campaign's Web site.
What gives? The ads, powered by Google's AdSense system, are automatically programmed to run on partner sites whenever McCain's or Palin's name appears. But the computer doesn't make a distinction between, say, a video of the real Palin on SNL and the fake Palin on ..... er, foreign relations.
But darn -- the McCain campaign didn't return calls for comment.
