Is this advertising or cheating?

I spend half my time on my front randomly browsing the web nowadays – it’s not like there’s anything better to do, unfortunately.

Being responsible…

So just now I stumbled upon “5 Travel Mistakes To Avoid In Singapore“, and I thought it was rather well written. They even had a nice hotel recommendation.

Up until this point I find the site quite appealing and am ready to follow the site (and at the same time check out how the Perak Hotel Singapore actually is). I scroll up, and I’ll give you a screenshot of the header of the site containing the page I stumbled upon.

This kind of reminds me of this scene from Bruce Almighty (not sure how it’s exactly related, but it’s one of the scenes that immediately popped up into my head):


Get it? Har har!

I think this is more like good hotel advertising, but it would be a little nicer if we didn’t figure out that the hotel was actually advertising itself that way.

I mean, the only thing wrong with it is that it’s not advertising the Ritz-Carlton, but instead it’s only advertising this crap:


Is this more on the “good hotel advertising” side, or is it more on the “cheating” side? Please let us know in the comments below (rhyme not intended).
