I Avert My Eyes When The Pre-YouTube Ads Come On

It's a trick that I am guessing many people are using.

When I click to watch a YouTube video, I avert my eyes from the advertisement and concentrate on the little black rectangle in the corner of the YouTube where it says 'You can skip this Ad in 3 secs'

'You can skip this Ad in 2 secs'

'You can skip this Ad in 1 secs'

And then click.

A side benefit is that it is increasing my powers of concentration. ;-)

Of course, if he had written 'done-for-you', as the sentence demanded, I wouldn't have laughed my socks off so much.
