I just can't believe I sat through a Bounty ad concluding with the eternally annoying "Bounty, the quicker picker upper" before watching this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5lAS7H6tkg

Look, I'm totally willing to wave the capitalist flag when all else is equal and may the best man win.  But FFS, someone died today and you're promoting a paper towel that might just be able to clean up his remains better than the leading brand??

Give it a rest while we respect this unfortunate soul who died prematurely today at 21.

Dood I just hit that several times, it's just a rotating ad. Got Dayquil, Bounty and Showtime. Don't believe it's in their control at all ... except that they place ads on YouTube pre-trailers.

Yeah, I wasn't really blaming Bounty.  It just felt distasteful and I was pretty sad thinking about that guy and his family.  I'm sure those ads are placed well before tragedy strikes.

Yeah, the ads are probably a huge buy and then just applied whenever someone watches the vid.

Man that was a horrific hit. No wonder the other lugers are uptight. Egads.
