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

Clicking on the ad takes you to 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.
