    Separate question. As I've done more videos I've gotten more careful about audio, and now looking back on my Computerland video I'm appalled at how uneven it is. You might recall the first version...

    Okay I've figured it out. It's a discovery ad that is targetted to specific Youtube channels. That's why I'm only seeing it after LGR or LGR Blerbs. Interesting.
