Tracking advert clicks within an interactive PDF

Hello,

I have a client which distributes weekly interactive PDF newsletters which contain adverts which link through to another website. After some investigation it seems Google Analytics Event Tracking doesn't cover this as area of tracking.

Would anybody be able to point me in the right direction of either best practice techniques, or some software which can track clicks within a PDF?

Thank you in advance
