Targeted marketing, facebook and fat pastors…

fat_pastor_fitnessThis ad (shown in the picture) has been on my Facebook sidebar. In case you don’t already know, Facebook data-mines your info and spits out ads just like Google search–or similar to that. This one cracks me up! “Get Fit To Preach” with a bald, ripped guy who probably is a model who never heard of parsing Greek in order to preach. Or, if he is a pastor, I bet he preaches from the gym, not just attends the church of gym.

All this to say that I have become soft and am mad the Big Brother of Facebook found me out and reminded me of this on the sidebar of my profile. Thanks, Facebook.

What ridiculous advertisement have you endured on your social media site of choice?
