By now, even the most novice YouTube viewer is familiar with the wide ‘Skip Ad’ banner at the bottom right of the screen when a commercial plays. Nearly every viewer is anxiously waiting for the 5 seconds to countdown to, yes, skip the ad.
Even when the user clicks the skip button, it only jumps them ahead to the next mock commercial.
But on the other hand, it seems to have worked with Itsderfalicious, who says, “My grandma saw this video and now she’s booked tickets to South Carolina and is on the waiting list for Silver Manor Estates. She won’t believe me when I tell her they aren’t real ads! Thanks a lot guys… Can’t wait for Operation 0 though!”
