I just got done watching 3, 1 minute long videos previewing this week's spisode of The Office. Each was preceeded by 15 or 30 second ads. Each one. For a minute of video.
Regarding this, my brain broke.
Why are there suddenly ads before, seriously, nearly every video of even mild popularity on YouTube and embedded on various Web sites. CNN makes you sit through 30 seconds of ad content before you watch ANY video, even if it's shorter than the ad.
It's too much. It's getting out of hand. I like The Office enough to tolerate it, but it was excessive. It didn't even recognize that I was a visitor on a sustained visit to the site and had seen an ad already. Just kept slinging them at me.
It's to the point where I'm ready to start investigating extensions and add-ons to enable skipping through this s#it. I am sure someone's working on a way. It's not rocket science.
Anyone ready to join the revolt with me?
All kidding aside, it is ridiculous.
