Starbucks Steams Up the Huffington Post

I didn’t get enough of Ricky Gervais last night on the Golden Globes, so I started my day at the Entertainment section of Huffington Post. Starbucks was today’s sponsor. The page started out looking like this:

And then soon after my arrival, steam emerged from the coffee cup in the Starbucks banner, hiding Mr Gervais behind a veil of noxious vapors.

Normally I don’t like expanding rich-media ads that cover the content, but this one didn’t bother me. Kind of added to the fun of Golden Globes post-morteming.
