Youtube Grabbing Netflix Mindshare

Has anyone else noticed that Youtube seems to be butting into Netflix’s mindshare with their new icon? The one with the red rectangle and the play symbol in it?

Even though I never really used it, Netflix seemed to have built a pretty strong dark red -> video association into me, and post-split Youtube seems to have just muscled it’s way in there. It really looks like a movie site.

I’m going to go ahead and guess that it’s not a coincidence that Youtube now sells you movies…
