Today in, “When news and advertising collide,” we have this screenshot from, in which a story about Odell Beckham Jr. being suspended sits inches above a Lenovo ad featuring… Odell Beckham Jr.


It’s funny, Beckham looks a bit happier in the ad than he does in the photo accompanying the news story.

We’ll save the philosophical conversation about the wall between business and editorial and conflicts of interest in sports media for another day and just enjoy the coincidence.

Hey, now that Beckham is suspended maybe he’ll have more time to do yoga with Lenovo.
