Google Places Image Ad in Search Results!

You thought you would never see it, an image or interactive ad on a Google search results page. But it is here, finally.

A search for jason bourne has an ad at the top of the page, with an image, that contains a "Watch the movie trailer" link.

Here is a screen capture:
Image ad on Google.com

Clicking on the ad takes you to http://www.searchforbourne.com/. Clicking on "watch the movie trailer" shows this video embedded directly in the search results.

Marrisa Mayer of Google, did suggest this might happen in the future. But I am still very shocked.

Postscript: Google has done something like this in the past, Danny covered it with NBC Scores Graphical Ads/Promos On Google in 2006.
