Freaky Google ads

I was sent an email containing a number of family photos. The subject line was "Photos" and the body of the message was blank. The image files themselves were numbered, not given descriptive names.

Here are the Google ads that Gmail served up alongside this message:

My guess is the blank message, unnamed photo files, etc., didn't give gmail's artificial intelligence anything to go on, so it had no choice but to serve you potluck.
