The real problem with the newly launched Google Adsense for video isn’t with Google Adsense for video — it’s that online video sucks. Most original online video content isn’t just bad — that would be fine, because I like bad: I even like VH-1’s Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant (only for the soundtrack, of course) — it is lifespan-reducingly awful. There are too many ill-groomed, strangely perspiring and ill-lit people listing toward me out of the screen while stationed in front of creepily-domestic backdrops and reading — reading!! — from material that sounds like it was written by lawyers on downers.
Someone who agrees with me here, so he must be smart.
