------------------------------------- The name's Peter. From New Jersey. 22 years old. Absurdly sarcastic. Read much more in my "about me" by clicking on the link below. =) Side note: Many people are wondering why there are no "non-anon" questions on my blog. It's because I answer them privately so my blog doesn't get overwhelmed with questions. Side side note: I don't do promos. Side side side note: I don't reblog unless the post is something I really feel needs to be seen.
Annoying co-worker: *Knocks on my office door.* Can I come in?
Annoying co-worker: Peter, it's important.
Me: No, it's not. Leave me a voice-mail when you get back to your desk.
Annoying co-worker: But our voice-mail system is down today.
Me: *Demonically smiles at him through the window.* I know.
Youtube is a wonderful thing. It really is. I get to watch my favorite old shows, my favorite music videos, my favorite comedians, etc.; but Youtube’s increasingly infuriating commercial interruptions are really beginning to piss in my Fruity Pebbles.
As recent as a year and a half ago, we were able to watch everything on youtube completely commercial free. THAT’S THE MAIN REASON I FUCKING LOVED IT SO MUCH! But then Vevo and all the other incredibly irritating Youtube product placement programs barged like a pedophile at a “Wiggles” concert and ruined all the fucking fun.
They’re (Youtube) also quite distasteful when it comes to their choice of ads. Just the other day I was watching a rather informative mini-documentary about Americans’ junk food addiction, and guess what pops up? A 30-second ad for Snickers. THE CHOCOLATE JUNK FOOD KING. Really, Youtube? Really? It couldn’t have been an ad promoting celery and fucking bean sprouts? Not that such an ad would have persuaded me to eat any of that garbage (healthy food), but still, a little consistency would be nice.
And another thing, Youtube: Do you really think that interrupting our videos with these useless ads is going to persuade us to buy the products being advertised? Don’t think so, douchewads! As a matter of fact, it often DISSUADES me from buying the advertised product in the future. And in certain cases, if I’m interrupted during one of my favorite shows/videos, I have thoughts of showing up at the advertised product(s)’ local warehouse to piss on a few security guards at the entrance. I’m well aware that the security guards are not at all to blame, but still, they’re guilty by association, and pissing on them seems like it would feel right in the moment.
Simply put, I have one humble message for the folks behind the scenes at Youtube: STOP BEING MONEY-GRUBBING, ATTENTION WHORING BUZZKILLS.
