Habbo Hotel advertising within drug-dealing gang warfare game on Facebook

Banner adverts for kids' virtual world Habbo Hotel are appearing within a Facebook game called Thugz Passion (basically a text-based splicing of Dope Wars with Grand Theft Auto). It's not necessarily Habbo's choice - ad placement isn't within their control on Facebook - but it shows the dangers of a child-friendly brand trying to advertise within Facebook games. (PC)
