According to USA TODAY:

Companies such as Coca-Cola, Unilever and Paramount Pictures have stamped ads on hotel room staples, from pillow cases and shower curtains to room card keys and door-knob signs. They’ve wrapped hotel elevators with oversized ads and are handing out product samples poolside.
Marketers including these will spend about $75 million to market their wares to an estimated 1.5 million students during the annual spring rite.

Run students run.
