Elevator Advertising at MCI Center

When the elevator doors closed this morning I wasn't quite expecting to be greeted by full-sized advertising for CBS's How I Met Your Mother. I'm sure these ads in the MCI Center (the office tower over Macy's Plaza) aren't the first time this has been done, but it is new to me.

As far as advertising goes, it's a great space. What else are you going to do in the elevator besides stand there staring at the door?

And as proof that we never grow up: Even in an office tower the ads are getting defaced.

Update (3pm): Thanks to Dana for pointing out that it's CBS, not Fox. I was getting it confused with The War at Home, which I've similarly never watched.
