But I sure as shit hate when they play before (and even after) a video that's less than a minute long.
If I'm about to watch Louis Rossmann repair a logic board or dish about business for half an hour, that's fine.
If I'm about to watch Vanoss, Delirious, et al get up to their gaming shenanigans for half an hour, that's also fine.
But if I'm watching a cat video a few seconds long or checking to see if the remix video I found is the one I'm after, my patience wears thin in short order.
The number of ads that are showing up as commercial breaks within longer videos is getting ridiculous, too, for that matter.
And the goddamn suggested viewing popup ads "You're watching a BlueStahli/Anthrax/(any metal) lyric video! Might we suggest the new Justin Bieber video?"
