It pays to advertise

November 19, 2011

It used to be said when watching ITV, that the adverts were better than the programmes ā€“ Now the same can be said of Googleville. Searching for a nice American prison to spend my retirement in, I came across the Eastern State Penitentiary. Helpfully, Google Earth let me look at some interior photos, gave me the full address and a link to their website. Then their advert algorithm cleverly matched what would be most likely to get the inmates to part with their cash and up popped: “VIDEO YOUR NIGHT OUT”. Puts you in mind of Johnny Cash singing ‘Folsom Prison Blues’. I will add this advert to my Google picture of the Eiffel Tower featuring the suggestion I holiday in Blackpool and see their tower.
