Lateral thinking on Google Adwords

I just found this great clip of a fantastic use of ASCII characters in Google Adwords. From the comments I can't be sure if this was cleared by Google or not. In my mind Google should allow this as it's breaks the mold and makes people try harder.

The idea will only work for companies who can visualise their products, but that means it wouldn't saturate the market. Spoof or spam I still love this idea. What do you think?

  1. Hi, after reading about this I created an ad like that for my site which is also auto related ( http://www.boing.ro ). You can see the print screen here http://www.boing.ro/Ascii.jpg or you can go to www.google.ro and search for "masini". The ad is set to be shown only for romanian language and for that particular search term. If you find it please do not click on it as it does not have a big budget allocated. It is made just for fun. The ad is very fresh so it didn't got disabled by google until now.
