Something New? Something Old?

It appears that Snapple has purchased all commerical avails for 40 days at WFNX (only $2 million) and they're touting it as a "40 day Free For All" with "no commercials" - just "underwriting". It is being called "brandcasting." Has anybody heard of this before? I know that stations have gone commercial-free for X number of songs as a stunt for changing formnats, but I've never heard of one company buying all the time in such a large amount.
