Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper ran a print ad for Google's search advertising business. It read:

“You know who needs a haircut? People searching for a haircut,” the ad reads. “Maybe that’s why ads on Google work.”

The ad was tweeted by media reporter Steve Ladurantaye with the caption, “An ad for Google ads in today’s Globe demonstrates the value of print ads, yes?”

Was this an experiment? Or their efforts to pull in traditional advertisers into online advertising?
