A tale of two trailers

This is such a fucking first world problem, but it's the small shit that helps define us.

I just think it's really clever how a site like YouTube has figured out that I like watching movie trailers, so it offers them up as ads, but then I'm trying to watch some other movie trailer, and it barges in with a preview for something else.

Sure, you want to see the new ad for the new James Bond or something, but how about you really watch an ad for some Shudder shit?

Is it an ad just because I don't want to see it? Is this how capitalism works? Couldn't YouTube just give me the Bond in the first place? Fuck, then what? Do I have to watch something else to make up for the ad I actually wanted? Is this how things work now?
