Google Testing New AdWords Ads

While we're moving towards the most important season of the year for the online retailers, Google is testing a couple of new ad formats. I've seen a few of them in Holland already, but most of the tests are done in the US. Is it a coincidence or is Google testing the new formats deliberately around this time of year? The search volumes will increase exponential towards the Christmas season and that means they're getting more relevant test results.

In this context “we”, I mean the experienced Google AdWords marketeers who know the system inside out (but still have to get used to the new interface, but that’s a whole other discussion).
