Things The Internet Needs | Part 1: AdPants

First world problem solving.

Every time you skip a YouTube advert (after being forced to watch 5 seconds) or mute the new evil 15 second ones, a Tweet / Facebook update is sent out referencing the brand in question saying something like:

“Thanks @[nameofbrand] for hijacking my @YouTube time with your old school ad #adpants”

Click the ‘share’ button under any YouTube video and you’ll get these options.

It’s not until you click ‘more’ that the opportunity to post to much more popular social sites like Twitter, tumblr, Blogger etc. appear.

So why does Bebo get the nod before these other sites?
