At last, you'll be able to stream your cat-on-a-Roomba videos without watching that prim-and-proper toilet paper lady first.

Shhhh, toilet paper lady. It's OK. It will all end soon. (via YouTube)

Google is apparently trying to make YouTube level up and compete with big kid video streaming sites like Netflix. Not only has YouTube been producing more original content, but they're going to start offering an ad-free subscription service as well, possibly before the end of the year. Personally, I'm very excited about this, because ever since I looked up statistics on how many blimps exist last month, YouTube keeps serving me the same ad for Van Wagner Arial Advertising in front of almost every video I try to watch (although if anyone wants to help me raise money to hire a Van Wagner blimp printed with the words "I hate Van Wagner," I'd be into that).
