When photos depicting the tragic aftermath of the Samoa tsunami landed on Twitpic, hung by user Ardieroque, so did this awkwardly timed ad placement from PG&E promoting clean energy through "Wave Power" that read; "Destroyer of Rocks. Creator of Clean Energy". Doh!
While the news of a tsunami hitting the island of Samoa is nothing to giggle at, this minor ad disaster is an unfortunate failure worthy of highlighting. Similar to the Wall Street Journal ad fail we unveiled a few weeks back featuring Steve Jobs.
Is this why Twitter is avoiding ad placement like it's the Swine Flu? It's possible. Thanks to Chris for the wild tip and keen eye.
