Interactive Features on Youtube Being Put to Interesting Use

I spent some time last couple of days on Youtube to see what the Youtubers are up to nowadays. Increasingly, I am seeing the interactive features of Youtube being utilized. The interactive features I am talking about is the ability to put message boxes and hyperlinks in the middle of your video. Many Youtubers are using the message boxes to ask viewers to subscribe to their channel, but more interestingly, some are using them to build an interactive experience. One example of this is Barack, Paper and Scissors:

where viewers are challenged to play an interactive game of, well, Barack, Paper and Scissors. Another example is an interactive dating game called Jacuzzi Girl:

These are exciting possibilities for the Youtube platform and I am sure you are going to see many more content creators using this feature to create interesting stuff.
