By refreshing the video you're currently watching on Hulu, the site will give you a choice to either watch normal ads or one long one before the program starts. Pick the long one.
By viewing Honda's short film, you can eliminate interruptions, which means your video can buffer without having to cut off to view an ad and cut back to your show. It's good for slower connections, and if you go and grab a sandwich or relieve yourself during the 2-minute show, you'll never even know there was an ad in the first place.
I wish I knew about this trick last week when I was catching up on the last few Late Night with Conan shows when visiting my parents. Get faster internet please! [Lifehacker]
