Google Videos with Advertisements

Now Google Video is including advertisements inside the Google videos as was found in a clip from the Charlie Rose show which included 2 advertisements for Allstate insurance at following two time intervals –

  • 8 minutes
  • 35 minutes


And this is what happened when advertisement appeared –

screen darkens, ad appears with its own timer bar, then ad fades and show resumes. Seemed like two akward spots for commercials as Charlie was in the middle of introducing his guest.

The question asked is that is it right to commercialize non-commercial videos as this happens to be the one? Specially when Google is doing so?
