Interactive WoWS Advertisement spotted in the wild?!

Today, I was browsing a Android development forum, and I found a Wargaming World of Warships advertisement  in the middle of the page that said "World of Warships. Start Mission!". Curious, I tapped the advertisement  and to my surprise, it was interactive! It said "shoot the ship".

 

I did, but I missed, and failed the mission as I was dropping frames like hell (mind you, this was on my Android phone). It then said "World of Warships. Download Now" and a "Try again" button at the bottom of the advertisement.

Is there any chance I can get a URL to that advertisement that is interactive? I'd love to give it a shot on my desktop machine. :)

Will say, however Wargaming does it is pretty damn clever. Got my attention longer than what the average fake app ad did.

Hello, I doubt I will be able to get the exact ad but I will see what I can do. Banner ads and such is done by a department I rarely interact with.

That would be great. The WG Staff really need a tip jar, sounds like you and your community management department coworkers need some drinks with all the work you do keeping everyone in check and sane!

OK funny thing... I was visiting some... um... special interest websites and I think I spotted it :P

 

However, I do not have the actual ad yet. If I am not mistaken, the ads are handled by a third party and I personally do not have contact with them. I will try the content team.
