Purchase Content from Google Video?

Has anyone come across this? Clicking on some videos from Google Video gives you the message "Buy this video to see the full * seconds"?

You can give it a try with this video. Let it play until the end.

Could this be a sign of Google Purchases? Just remember, Google pages that do not exist give you a 404 error page. The site redirects you to your account.

It's just a matter of time before Google Purchases become a reality.

UPDATE: The message only appeared on some of Google Videos for a short amount of time. Shortly afterwords as well as at the time of this update, the message could no longer be found on any of the videos that Google hosts.

Google now includes a “Buy” button to the right side of the video, as well as the price. Some purchasable content has a "Buy DVD" link underneath of the buy button to purchase the DVD from the site that has the exclusive ownership rights of the video. I have included a screenshot for the people that missed it the first time.

There is no such message. This post is all wrong. Such a message does NOT at all exist. I played it until the end.

Siddhartha, that post was written in the beginning of January. It is now almost April. The message has not been seen since the first day it was reported by another blogger. It is no longer there.

Anyway I have updated the post so that others are aware as well.
