In Canada, we just charge the sponsor lots of money. :)
BTW, there is a current ad running on one of the Detroit stations where
a Scout in BSA uniform stops a Mack Truck in the middle of nowhere, and
a really old lady hobbles across the road. Meanwhile, hordes of eager
shoppers raid the back of the trailer for the latest back-to-school
wear. The caption says something about "some people will do anything
to get to our sale..."
I didn't think it was exactly flattering.
