Anyone seen the new In Stream Ad? You have to click "Learn More"

Has anyone seen the new In Stream Ad? You have to click the gold "Learn More" text at the bottom. If you click the video ad itself like normal all it does is pause the ad. In Order to link to the site you have to click the small text at the bottom "Learn More."

 

Is this where YouTube is heading or is this just a special case?

Is this a beta? In my videos, if I click on the video while playing - I am directed to the advertiser landing page.

Same as mine, you click anywhere on the ad and it takes to the landing page.

I came across the ad I posted above and its different though. I have never even seen an option for something like this. Not that I would want to use it but I am curious on how or why it was done that way.

Hi Josh,

 

Do you know more bout this? I still  view those 2 kinds of inStream Ads.

With and Without "Learn more" link. When u create a new inStream Ads. U only have the option to put a video ads with learn More link. Is it a way to roll back? Now when u click wherever on the video it "stop" and "play" the video...
