Algorithmic ads sink ships

I wonder if advertisers will ever figure out a smarter way of algorithmically placing ads on pages? Or if a video has millions of views, is it worth advertising against, even if the content goes against your message?

Also, this is the first time I’ve seen a ‘contains content from’ notice on a YouTube video. Interesting approach.

And if you think that video looks bad, check out what this other cruise ship looked like inside.

On August 1, the Pacific Sun ran into a heavy storm 400 miles north of New Zealand, hitting 25-foot-tall waves and 50-knot winds. Its 1732 passengers weren’t prepared to endure the madness that ensued. Absolutely crazy.
