 (00:00) to (02:00)


I'm angry today.

 NewSection (0:02)


To give a quick summary of the situation regarding demonitization on YouTube,

 NewSection (0:06)


there are advertisers in the world who don't want to advertise on anything that might be the least bit controversial

 NewSection (0:13)


and so YouTube created a thinky machine that decides for advertisers

 NewSection (0:22)


like, what is the box of stuff that has nothing controversial in it?

 NewSection (0:26)


So basically no discussion of anything that might by anyone in the world be considered controversial.

 NewSection (0:32)


That includes, like, news in some extent. In fact when I upload videos now

 NewSection (0:38)


I'm inside of a beta that lets me rank for myself whether the video contains

 NewSection (0:42)


something that advertisers might be concerned about and tell them exactly what that is.

 NewSection (0:48)


Usually on vlogbrothers it's nothing,

 NewSection (0:50)


but if it was this video, I'd have to say that it has something to do with current events

 NewSection (0:54)


and some, some advertisers might not want to be involved with current events.

 NewSection (0:59)


They just want you to feel happy while you're getting the brand message.

 NewSection (1:02)


Just have a feeling of joy, while you also see this logo,

 NewSection (1:07)


and then you'll buy it the next time you're at the store.

 NewSection (1:11)


Seriously, they've done research.

 NewSection (1:13)


I... understand this, I guess,

 NewSection (1:18)


because YouTube is just trying to make it work, and advertisers are used to the old way

 NewSection (1:23)


where to be clear, this was the only way it ever worked.

 NewSection (1:26)


You knew what you were buying when you were a buyer

 NewSection (1:30)


of advertising back in the day, because you were buying SpongeBob SquarePants

 NewSection (1:35)


or Anderson 63... scooper (laughs)

 NewSection (1:38)


That was not on purpose.

 NewSection (1:40)


Or you were buying Roseanne,

 NewSection (1:42)


or you were buying Modern Family.

 NewSection (1:45)


You knew what you were buying and now, on YouTube,

 NewSection (1:49)


You don't know what you were buying.

 NewSection (1:49)


And for a long time, we got away with people not knowing what they were buying

 NewSection (1:53)


until some people were like, "Hey, I saw a Coke ad

 NewSection (1:55)


on this terrorist recruitment video. Maybe there's a problem."

 NewSection (1:59)


And some people say
