This can't be real, I mean I see it, but it can't be real. A WebmasterWorld thread has a picture of, well let me show you.

Huh? Ok, so there is a market for bench ads but is someone piggy banking off of Google's name to sell bench ads or is Google selling bench ads? I would believe the first.

So weird.

I read it as an instruction for people to "Google (for) benchads".

Hmmm... you're probably right. But you can see how I was confused...

This pic has been floating around the web for at least a couple months. It's totally not true. But it is pretty funny.

It's is an advertising co Nadle Advertising. that advertises on google so they are saying that if you want to place an ad on that particular bench or just place a bus bench ad "just google benchads". That is all.

Matt, you are mistaken. It's not a hoax, it's 100% true. I have seen them around here in S. Florida.
