Thumbs down Power106 listeners: upset about the Universal City Nissan Ad being displayed?

You may have noticed if you are listening to Power106, besides the artist, track title, and station id, they are displaying advertisements for Universal City Nissan while songs are playing.

It upsets me a great deal to look down and see my head unit being used as a billboard for advertising, rather than the information it should displaying EXCLUSIVELY (artist, track, station).

I called Power106 and of course, this is the first complaint of the sort they've had, as it is fairly new. Anyone else annoyed by this?
