Never seen anything like that before, very unsettling. Google is now pushing their own properties like crazy, to the point where it seems to me it no longer makes any point to use it to find information. On the other hand, if people are coming there to mostly find entertainment, then perhaps it makes sense to push videos forward so much. Regardless, the actual query has absolutely nothing to do with entertainment - a mundane household task.
It's actually 15 Youtube and 1 Ehow video. Well, since we know that Google and Ehow are joined at the hip, it's all the same to me... Ehow is at #2. Make no mistake, Ehow is not completely let down: once Web listings start, Ehow has 8(!) more of those, too.
Also, it's 9 videos with video icons and then 7 more that look like "normal" listings but are Youtube anyway, and only then Web listings start.
Funny thing, too: I was trying to make a printscreen of this horrible SERP but I don't have monitor with vertical resolution high enough to fit two full screens of videos before the Web content starts. Talk about Above The Fold! This time it's more like Above Two Folds! ATF->WTF ?!
