Oh Just Give In Already, Video Embedding Resisters!


I was just watching this video on the Times website because OMG, Sandy Bullock, HER HAIR. A few questions: seriously now, why can’t I embed this video? Is it because… they’re desperate for the pageview on this video, against which they are not actually displaying advertising, so who cares anyway? (Stick a very short pre-roll ad on that puppy and let it be free!) And also when was this video published? Last year? This year? When you hit the “share” button, it launches a little popup, and then when you hit the “permalink” button, which launches another inexplicable popup, it says the video was published on “10[square][square],” which, I think that is some James T. Kirk star date time, not our human one? When is this, and why can’t I have it!
