      Is the embed not working?

        Seeing as you brand yourself as a design critic it seems a little lazy to post someone else's video to your blog without adding anything to it or providing any extra value other than to get traffic to your blog. I'd expected at least a bit more than 'Just brilliant'.

          or providing any extra value other than to get traffic to your blog

          Agree. Posting your own content to a community driven site like this is lame enough. Posting an embedded video with barely a sentence of context is just cringy.

            Yet here we are. Commenting. Clicking away like good little designers filling his CTR quotas up / making ad revenue.

            Why is it lame?

              It's self indulgent. Post it to your own platforms, and if it's good, it'll get picked up. There are so many places to post your own work/content (Dribbble, Medium, Behance... the list goes on).

          The video speaks for itself. I appreciate the feedback.

            Well that's his whole point? The video speaks for itself, then just post the Youtube link.

      Then he wouldn't get traffic.
