Oh for Pete's sake, PLEASE turn off auto-play on these videos

    I was laying down in a hotel room, looking at some hubs and one of the new video hubs started blaring out of my computer - woke up my family to instructions on making pork tenderloin. 

    not cool Hub Pages...seriously!

    I love pork but found instructions blaring at me and waking my family to be uncalled for.

    They don't auto play the YouTube videos, so why do it to these? 

    I love the video feature and enjoy K9's and Simone's videos, but let me hit 'play' like other ones.

      This happens when an advertiser slips something past the ad companies. It's generally against the rules of the company selling the ad space, but with the sheer volume of advertising they handle, sometimes they miss a rules-bender.

      Report it to Hubpages HQ, identifying the offending ad, so they can send a request back to Google to remove it from their rotating ad pool until that's fixed.

        HP already said they were "experimenting" with allowing autoplay--so I would not assume this is a mistake,
