*UPDATE* Thanks for nothing, YouTube .
This video was previously set to the music "How It Ends" by DeVotchKa. The Band was kind enough to let us keep this video up with their music because they supported it's message. And what is that message? It's a protest about money as speech and that money in politics. It's a shout against about Citizens United, Super-Pacs, and everything that goes along with it. Of course it goes without saying that the we had *all* advertising disabled for this video (at least with the options we were presented).
And what does YouTube do? Unbeknownst to us, they start inserting a pre-roll GOP Super-Pac Ad before it starts. Of course we have no idea, the band sees it, is understandably upset, and hence no more music by DeVotchKa. Seriously, YouTube? We don't know what kind of ridiculous policy you have that makes you think that's ok. You'll be hearing from us, although sadly from now on all anybody will get to hear when they watch this video is some random electronic music track. Way to kill a video, YouTube. Bravo.
If you agree that this is wrong we encourage you to email YouTube and let them know as well.
Firstly, YouTube should really be respecting the settings of the account when it says we *DO NOT* wish to have advertising to monetize a video. Yeah, sure if we *were* trying to run ads (i.e. make money off this) that seems wrong, but we weren't. Secondly, if you are going to ignore those settings and defer to the copyright holder(?), then at least those ads should NOT be POLITICAL in nature without the PRIOR approval of the account holder. Some GOP Super-Pac does NOT speak for us. Frankly, it's offensive and shameful.
