One Sick Advertising Idea

This is one sick and horrible advertising idea, and I would never fault the editors for not publishing this one: but here it is....

When I first heard about the infamous pornographic “2 Girls 1 Cup” home video on YouTube, I was also told that if I did a search, I would be bound to find countless other videos of viewer reactions.

So here comes the advertising idea: since it is well-known that such reaction videos generate a huge amount of web traffic, periodic frames of billboard advertising between video clips could be very effective in improving one's product or brand recognition.

I know one might prefer to steer clear of associating their products with such videos, but it can be done in subtle ways (i.e. see the chocolate ice cream picture here).
