From the what were you thinking files…

A new AOL 9 ad shows Sting spamming random instant message users, foisting on them pieces of his new video. [MarketingWonk]

As noted at the MW site, it seems as though AOL and Sting clearly authorize random and bulk spamming of AOL users for promotional purposes. Sting gleefully zaps out his latest video to a list of strangers… when asked who they are getting a message from, one of the unsuspecting users says, “I don’t know, but he sure does like Sting.”

You have to stop and think about this for a second… as an AOL user you can expect to get spammed with IM from strangers and sending you video as well. What if it’s not that nice…
