YouTube allows big important people to do stuff not allowed to anyone else. In this case, it lets NBC and US Swimming block embeds without making it patently obvious. As is the case with everyone else.
If you’re just Joe Shlabotnik you can disarm embedding but YouTube will tell users you have done so.
So the preferred client’s tactic, the important person, people or business with cash money and fame, is given a sneaky way of getting the video onto sites worldwide as a device that silently reverts to a backlink. It’s a way of rigging the system, using the working assumption that the viewer will get the “blocked” message and choose to view it on YouTube anyway, where they will be exposed to the maximum advertising potential.
So after a couple days, and after the glee of the culture of lickspittle has seen to it that it has been distributed everywhere, the minders stealthily placed a block on all other domains except their own, at NBC here.
And it’s only a strategy that works with people who already have it all, who can virtually guarantee their stuff will get passed around and published everywhere upon immediate release. Joe Blow average videographer on YouTube could never mount such a strategy.
It was blocked at DD blog here. After working for a day or so, it’s hard to say.
No, millions and millions of views aren’t enough for our conceited celebrity athletes and their grasping presenters.
It must be spread around to all news organizations and media sites, too. But only working on those places that support the maximum accumulation of advertising revenue is what they’re really after.
It’s actually kind of neat to find they’re just what you believe them to be — astonishingly greedy puffed up control freaks and pismires.
Alert viewers will note poor six foot one US celebrity teen swimmer Missy Franklin, who we were informed earlier would be taxed at least $14,000 dollars on her medals, was in virtually every scene of the video.
