    @tanukivilla Yeah, but this 'ad' isn't a typical ad. Those ad's are made by the companies that are being promoted, and are simply ran prior to the content Rooster Teeth has made. The ad in THIS video is technically content that Rooster Teeth created, it just happens to be endorsing a particular product. And unlike most forced ad's on the internet, you're not required to watch it for any amount of time before watching a video, it's PART of the video. That's the difference you don't seem to understand. Just skip past it, dude.

    Although I'm honestly not at all surprised that people are making such a fuss over something so trivial. People throw in a couple of bucks and suddenly their sense of entitlement is through the roof.

    I bet you now that guy is happy this happened. Not only does he now have a story about him on the Podcast but also an Animated Adventure about him. He may of not got that picture but now he has a video of his story. smiley4.gif

    @Sorge

    Because people (i.e. sponsors) are literally paying money to not see ads. Regardless of the fact that it's 20 seconds or you can skip it, the bottom line is that you are not getting the service the company promised you for the money you paid for said service.

    Imagine you go to a restaurant and order a fixed price three course meal, but they only serve you two courses. While you could rationalize it and say, "It's only dessert" or "it's healthier if I skip it" that doesn't change the fact that the menu advertised one thing, you paid for that thing, and you wound up with something different and less than what you paid for.

    See, I feel like this situation really balances out for the guy. On the one hand, he never got the one damn photo he wanted due to time constraints and a stubborn mother, which sucks. However, now he's immortalized in a podcast story and even an RTAA, and the person he wanted a photo with probably won't ever forget him. That's kinda badass.

    I wonder how long that poor guy stopped talking to his mom. It would have at least taken me a month to get over it. Lol

    Why do people bother bitching about the ad?
    A) Rooster Teeth has been advertising in videos... probably since they started making them. It's nothing new. It's how they make the majority of their money. Not donations or people buying sponsorships, not revenue from the store. They're a legitimate production company, they need revenue to stay active and produce all the free content they do for you.
    B) It's 20 seconds. It's not that long of a time. If you can't wait 20 seconds, you have a problem.
    C) If you don't want to watch it, skip it. It isn't difficult. Move the slider to the right. Problem solved.

    Despite the kid was immortalized in an RTAA, he's probably watching this and getting pissed off again.

  • AzureWit

    I understand that a huge part of RT's revenue is ads, I do. But on a video so short, having an ad takes up a hugely disproportional amount of the video time. 20 seconds before a roughly minute long video, followed by 10-15 or so seconds of post-ad (the slate of other videos, at least on YouTube) makes the ad to content ratio extremely high, enough to really sour the video for me. I'm not saying I'm swearing off RTAA or anything like that, but I'm really not thrilled with this implementation.

    On the bright side for him, he is forever immortalized in a RTAA

    We'll that's the end of me watching rtaa. You don't put an ad in something this short. Bad enough you put ads on the recap wich is itself an ad.

    Really ads in RTAA now too? I have been paying for sponsorship I shouldn't be getting these pre-rolled ads. I support the company 100% and shouldn't have to deal with getting ads for those that use adblock or w.e

    I must be one of the only people who really doesn't care about the ads. :/

  • tanukivilla FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    An ad that RT animates themselves is still an ad.

    According to your own Sponsorship Perks page, "No pre-roll ads on videos". Since I'm a sponsor I should never see a pre-roll ad, even one RT animated themselves. Don't try to find loopholes that excuse or rationalize this behavior, just live up to your own words and stop doing it.

    Yeah, I uh... I was kind of one of those Guardians who was pulling Burnie away during this... sorry dude...

    I'm with HIIMCAPSLOCK. Sponsorship is an awesome deal and really a steal for what you get, but it explicitly says on the sponsorship page "no pre-roll ads". I mean technically this one is in the video not pre-roll, but still.

    Please don't do this pre-roll-ad-in-the-video thing, I pay for a sponsorship, that should be enough. You shouldn't punish your dedicated users just because some people use adblock, not to mention you seem to be doing really well for yourselves. I'm not saying you can't, I'm just saying that I really, really think it's a bad idea.
