They put these slow cover songs on everything now, even normal adverts about banking for strawberry floats sake. Utter shite.

What's more annoying now is trailers on YouTube having two seconds of shots from the trailer you're about to see right at the beginning. Doolittle there being a prime example.

They’re annoying if you’re going to watch them directly. But as taf said those first 5 seconds are there for when it’s played in front of another YouTube video as an actual advert advert that you can skip after a few seconds. Those 5 seconds are designed to be there to show you quickly what the ad is before you decide to skip or not.

It would make more sense for there to be a regular YouTube version and then a secret pre ad version that isn’t watchable on YouTube outside of being selected as an advert

What on Earth will they be making at Netflix that made them turn down Star Wars? Maybe they wanted to avoid fan-outrage or Lucasfilm pulled out. Either way, the next Star Wars film is released on the 16th December 2022. That's only three years away so Disney better a get move on find some next-big-thing director, scribble together a script and get the SFX department back in to make sure they can push the movie out the door in time.

It doesn't matter what it is, just that it's making them more money.

This Twitter thread is worth a read on D&D-it's a Q&A that someone live tweeted that has caught people's attention because of their responses:




It seems Game of Thrones succeeded (until the end) despite of them to be honest.

Ha, didn't see this: re-upped the GoT thread to post it.

The absolute privilege streaming from every answer there is really something.
