Integration Idea: Small YouTube Player In GMail

GMail Logo
I just dreamed up this random idea on how to make GMail a little bit more fun. Right now the GMail interface is great, but the UI surrounding the site is quite boring. I think it can be jazzed up a little bit by decreasing the size of the message lines and integrating a sidebar on the right to place a mini-YouTube user interface.

This way you can be entertained by YouTube while writing or checking e-mails. The interface should not stop the YouTube player while reading and writing e-mails either. I think this would make the GMail experience more fun.

They did it for Google Talk on the left side-bar, why not integrate YouTube (the 2nd most visited web site in the world according to Alexa)?
