    So I came across this

    destructoid.com/play-street-fighter-ii-by-using-youtube-118412.phtml

    Basically you pick what move you're going to make by clicking it in the youtube video, which takes you to another video where the character performs the move. Kind of like those old books where you decide what to do then turn to page X.

    So the potential here is users going through many different videos in a single session, maybe slowly transition to a game offer or apply the same strategy to e-whore vids etc? I'm trying to spin it in a crazy way but the way I see it, this is a very new untapped strategy that's sure to become a trend SOON.

    I had few ideas, with e-whore vids you could add buttons like "take off her shirt" etc... "watch her live" - goes to webcam aff

    I'm thinking kids are going to fall for this more and it should be pretty easy to make a few videos that have to do with games/trends kids are into with a button or link in each vid that will of course be the aff link. Or work them up to it and make the "goal" or "finish" point of the video trail the offer?

    How do you want to do this? In a annotation you can just link to another YouTube video, not to a website. Just in the description.

    It's easy...all the options where you CHOOSE are annotations, like in the Street Fighter videos, and then when someone gets to the end, ie video where you want them to click AWAY from YouTube, you use an annotation or graphic that points to the link in the descript box and tell them to click that one....not hard at all.

    The Street Fighter vids look like they took awhile....there are easier ways to do this and still be effective.

    you could get your visitors engaged with the annotations and tell them to click the link in the description last.

    Video of hot chick with clothes on> Click here to see her remove shirt(this is an annotation)> This opens a video of same girl taking shirt off, at the end it says Click the link in the description to see her without the bra...
