A screenshot of the website for BBC's "34-stone Teenager."

Who thought that banner at the bottom would actually be a good idea?

I love ad placement! I suspect it's not the BBC's fault, though. More often than not, ads are placed on a page after having been rated for relevance based on keywords within the article.

I think the worst product placement ive seen is, A gen-av plane crashed not far from my house and it was in the paper, and in the bottem right corner was a "Learn to fly" advert.

She recently had to fly to Switzerland for specialist medical treatment. On checkin at Heathrow the airline, Swiss, told her that due to her large size she would have to buy two seats. The BBC reported that at first she was furious but when told she would get two meals her eyes lit up.
