Ok, I get it, 50 percent of the videos I watch on Youtube are Video game reviews (or quicklooks) between Rev3Games and Giantbomb. The other half are Nerdy Science shows like Vsauce. Does this mean that the only add I get to (am forced to) watch before every clip is the Dead Island Riptide add? Please Please stop! I fret that this game will not come out for a month, because I do not want to see this add over and over for a whole month.

Did you pre-order? Maybe you should pre-order.

I should make a site where you can trade cookies.

Then you for instance, could upload your cookies for google, and some one who just gets a bunch of porn ads could upload his, then you both download each others, and boom.

Problem fixed.

Mute sound and open a new tab?

That's definitely a hassle but at least you don't have to see the fucking ad again and again.
