Did Google Video Hijack the Link for a Craigs List Item?

I placed a link at Craigs List to a Google video of my sale item, and Google is displaying a "related" ad when you click on the link, instead of my video.

My video does shows up on the left, though it is not the first selection.

The link from Craigs performs a google ad media search which seems to be determined by the meta data of the of the video and shows a releated ad.

Nice aye?

I'm not quite clear about this one, minnapple. You posted the video on Google Video, but now a direct link to the video gets taken to a "related" ad?

Or is this an issue with Craigslist turning your "straight" link into a media search link? In other words, who's the culprit here, Google or Craigslist?

I hang my head low.
It was my mistake.
