The Day In Online Video News And Views 18th November 2013

YouTube went down for about 35 mins, so that happened. In other news, the Super Bowl ad wars are already heating up as two candy manufacturers go head to head for the first time. Two many contenders in the same category tends to blur the message for all but Mars has had the field all to itself for about 10 years so they can't be surprised that Nestle now want a piece of the action?

There's a new Dodge Durango ad coming out and everyone's favourite anchorman, Ron Burgundy is going to invite viewers to a test of endurance. The 'Hands on Ron Burgundy' contest dares you to touch him for the longest time possible for the chance to win a car (which we presume is a Dodge Durango.) These and other stories from videoland today.
