Google Search Stories

In the vein of digital storytelling, this site caught my eye the other day.  It's basically an advertising campaign for Google, but it allows YouTubers to create video "search stories," basically a series of searches in a sequence that tells some kind of story.  The page includes some examples.

I initially thought this was a clever way of driving people to create promotional content on behalf of Google, but then it's hosted on YouTube which belongs to Google anyway and the site hardly needs advertising at this point.  It's also kind of an interesting creative outlet for a new, recursive form of digital storytelling in my opinion.  Thoughts?
