Since the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig, BP has spent enormous amounts on advertising, including nearly $100 million during the four months of the spill -- about $5 million a week, according to Fortune.
One of the most memorable ads featured the company's then-CEO, Tony Hayward, apologizing for the spill while promising full financial support during the cleanup. The $50 million ad campaign was lambasted by the public and harshly criticized by President Obama.
Nearly 100 television advertisements have since been uploaded to to BP's official YouTube channel, which seems to show an evolution from disaster control to tourism advocacy. Hayward's apology does not appear on the channel.
Take a look at an abridged history of BP's advertisements since the spill below.
