Hi @Ungoverned R don't panic, Video Ad spend is often inaccurate for very recent data; you'll find this figure will be amended to something closer to your daily budget within the next day or so.  AdWords will never charge you more than 20% over your specified daily budget on any given day, and never more than your budget for the whole month on a billing cycle.
