    To me anyway. I'm not sure how the advertising works here on the tdpri but as you can see in the screenshot, the ad is for State Farm Insurance but in an Asian character set. Is this indicative of a site hack? A sponsored site hack?

    Yes, that's one of the strategies behind this spamming. It is an attempt to get the Google advertising content analysis algorithm to show certain ads where the spammer, or the spammer's customer, will get clicks on specific ads and thus make money. It is a numbers game so even if only a tiny percentage of people click the ad it's profitable for the spammer.
