Watch The HIMYM LilysInLabor.com Video Geographically Restricted By CBS

As I have written in previous posts I am a fan of the CBS show “How I Met Your Mother” (HIMYM). Last night was a double episode for the Season 7 finale dubbed ‘The Magician’s Code, Part One’ and ‘The Magician’s Code, Part Two.’ As per usual, the HIMYM team ensured that when a website was mentioned in the show – in this case LilysInLabor.com – that the site actually exists in the real world. The site has a short video about how the character Lily is in labor which the main character Ted created to send out in an email so everyone would know about the momentous occasion. As per usual, I visited the site from my phone at the commercial break after it was mentioned and saw that it required Flash to view the video…I thought nothing of it and just planned to check it out later. When I got to my computer a bit later I went to the site and because I am in Canada this is what I saw:

LilysInLabor.com geo restrited in Canada by CBS

I have already mentioned how silly I think it is for certain things to be restricted based on geography. In this case, however, it wasn’t even an entire episode of the show it was one little digital short that ties in to the plot of the episode. I immediately took to Google and with a bit of searching was able to find someone who had ripped the video off the Official CBS site and uploaded it to YouTube without geographic restrictions (at least without them for Canada, I can’t speak for the rest of the world but let us know in the comments if you’re elsewhere and can/can’t watch the video).

Because I’m me I decided to embed the video here so all y’all can watch it too! Hopefully, CBS doesn’t complain to YouTube about the video and have them take it down because I think we all know it will just be put up again very quickly by a different uploader or on a different site. In fact, I already found two of the same video (the slight choppiness on the first two words on both indicate that they’re the same source) on YouTube so if one gets taken down I am going to embed both.

Without further ado here they are:

And here’s the second one:

    Thank you very much1 I saw your embedded video from The Netherlands (both are working).

    It’s a bit stupid to block that…
