The Most Incredible, Amazing Video Ever

This is a gift to all my blogger friends in the U.S.:

This is — more or less — what we in Canada, The UK, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world get most of the time when you embed certain videos in your blog.

Please stop torturing us.





  1. Ah well…because I am a pure techno-phobe I haven’t figured out how to embed videos on my blog…now I guess I never will :)

    • Because the internet isn’t as “free” and “borderless” as it once was. When servers detect an IP address that is outside the US, all kinds of restrictions kick in.

      American bloggers are really big on embedding YouTube and Vimeo videos, but not everybody gets to see them.

      The image I created here — albeit done in a hurry and missing the four stars and the YouTube logo — is exactly what we see. It usually says something a little more formal however.
