Odd CBS YouTube Video - Advertisement and Loading?

CBS YouTube Video 01First it says "Please wait. Loading your video..."CBS Odd YouTube VideoAnd then it says "Advertisement: Your video will start in 1 seconds." Notice the advertisement bars?YouTube Video loadingThe first bar starts immediately, not after a few seconds as is normal with other partner videos. Also curious, there is no advertising on this video (or to the right of it). You can see it for yourself at

My theory is that this is an experiment CBS is doing with YouTube so that CBS can have more control over data collecting from its audience.

***If you have a complaint, email me at and I will probably post it.
