Gmail Ad that expands

I've been recently noticing some ads within Gmail that expand directly within my Inbox.  Does anyone know what type of ad this is?  Thanks in advance

Are you sure that this is a Google ad?

When saying "expand directly within my Inbox" do you mean that see the ad when opening the email message? - if this is the case, I suspect that is a spam email.

I'm positive its an Ad. This is actually the result of clicking an ad in the top banner above my email.  When clicked the ad was shown as seen in the screen shot.

 

100% sure this was NOT an email itself.

Hello. They're GMail sponsored promotions: http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2095222/Will-New-Gmail-Ad-Formats-Be-Totally-Worth-Dating-Engag...

 

Troubled me so much when I first saw them that I wrote a blog article about them.

@Calin;

Doesn't it say "ads by Google" at the top?

It says "Ads - Why these ads?" and "More promotions".

Thanks Calin,

 

I noted that it is a Google Offer...  How would one go about setting one of these up?


Thanks!
