Google Adsense Bus
Status: Fake
image This photo of a London bus displaying Google Adsense ads was posted on the Digital Point Forums on April 2nd. It since has been making its way around the internet. It's definitely photoshopped. The white google ads show no variation in color or shadowing. It was probably some kind of late April Fool's Day joke. Still, it would be a clever form of outdoor advertising. (via Fresh Creation)

Very clever. Almost looks real. Then you get that one thought in your head, "Why would anyone in their right mind put something like THAT on a bus?". Plus, the double-decker buses in London are retired. Picture must have been taken before that, or in Las vegas, where they still exist.
