Writing for the web all day, we tend to use a lot of YouTube embeds. We couldn’t help but notice that today there is a weird issue with the code. It’s adding a single parenthesis at the end:
I don’t know why this is happening, but I do know we’re not the only ones having this issue.
@YouTube @YouTubeDev The embed code is generating an extra ")" in the end of it. Take a look.

@youtube @google there seems to be an extra closing parenthesis after the embed iframe code closing tag on youtube.

@YouTube Did you guys push a bad code update that is adding an extra ) parenthesis at the end of the embed code? http://t.co/bvWCF4FUT1

looks like @youtube @YouTubeDev broke the embed code with an extra ')' at the end of the html code 🙁
