Whereas movies of ISIS beheadings one way or the other slipped previous YouTube censors, the video streaming website didn’t have any issues discovering a playful advert marketing campaign by some indie musicians — and promptly pulling the plug on it.
The marketing campaign, referred to as “YouTube Can Do Higher,” that includes a “sq.” businessman as “YouTube,” was created by the Content material Creators Coalition as an try and get the Google property to extend the advert income cut up with musicians.
The marketing campaign’s lead spot, “Pennies vs. Dollars,” was uploaded to YouTube on Oct. 25 round eleven:30 a.m. — and was pulled from the video-sharing website lower than forty eight hours later, the group, referred to as
c3, informed The Submit. YouTube stated it pulled the video “as a consequence of violation of phrases & circumstances.”
The artist-led coalition, whose members embrace David Byrne, Roseanne Money and T Bone Burnett, fired again on the Google unit inside an hour.
Dealing with a potential sizeable battle, YouTube re-posted the video at 1:50 p.m. on Oct. 27.
YouTube didn’t reply to questions on why it pulled the video within the first place.
