It doesn't work for all of them.

Anyway, you know what's more annoying than video ads?

When the stupid ad plays just fine but once the video you want to watch start playing, all it does is buffering every 2 seconds!

When they do that TV thing where the ad is at a different volume level than the content you were watching?

Honestly, I don't know why companies do this. Want to know the easiest way to lose my business? Rupture my ear drums - never, ever will I buy a damn thing you make.
