Ad Problem Answered

Recently when I visit random instructables, I come across an ad like the one I have attached. It plays an audio clip about a man reviewing the movie Twilight: New Moon and it lags my browser to the point that I have to forcibly end the browser session. When I click on the ad, I get sent to google.com. It is always the same ad, but never on the same page. I'm not sure if it is a bug, but there has to be something wrong here. Any feedback on what this ad is, or if it is meant to do that, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Can you post the link for the ad so we can try to take it out of our ad rotation?  I haven't actually gotten that ad yet so far...

Sorry for your trouble, we'll work to resolve the problem.

Yeah np, when I see it again I will copy it down. Only problem is, how do I get the link?

In FireFox, RIGHT click on the advert, then select copy link location.

Then paste the link into a comment.

Here are the properties of the ad, but how do you want the source. Do you want me to just paste here regardless of the size? Is there a certain portion?

It will re-size to fit the forum, and can be viewed larger by clicking on it.

Even with text? Because the source is in text....

Ah...

You could send it to Noahw by PM, then.

Click on his user name, then find the Private Message Me tab at the top-left.
