Veoh Monetizes Snake Video

While watching a video from a local snake restaurant, a catchy ad for the Cayman Islands popped up as an overlay. I quickly grabbed a screenshot before it went away. This is a great example of the perils of trying to monetize video. While more and more video is coming online, it's difficult to figure out what video is appropriate for ad placement.

I'm guessing the Cayman Islands chamber of commerce didn't expect to have their ads placed on top of a video featuring the decapitation of a live snake!

Here's the original video. Please comment if you experience some interesting ad placement while watching the video.
