Unusual Newspaper Homepage Ad

This ad just caught my eye while browsing local newspaper sites. Before loading the homepage, Arizona Daily Star’s azstarnet.com displays a fullpage ad for an upcoming home show. I honestly can’t remember seeing a newspaper site (besides the big nationals, maybe) do this sort of thing. From what I could tell, it wasn’t a timed ad that automatically loads the paper homepage; instead, the user has to click through to the site.
