Has anyone else seen the HUGE square with the arrow text ad version? Similar to the default circle with the arrow, but the square is so much bigger than the circle is. Google is displaying both versions on the same page for me and it looks awful. Hopefully this ridiculous test ends ASAP. Saw it yesterday too.

I still miss having multiple text ads on the skyscrapers. I don't use skyscrapers anymore because the CTR is waaay down. Highest CTR for me is now the square ad formats.

Seeing them more and more today. Worst ad version I've seen in a long time; someone should be fired over at Google.

I've seen it. Circle or square, either is fine with me.
