Came across this today on an embeded YouTube Video. When It Finished, I was shown the usual, but with a YouTube search box at the top, as seen here:

I thought it would look a lot more cluttered than it does, it actually works quite well, and removing the separator line and gradient between the video and where the Embed and URL codes are makes a world of difference to how the player looks overall.
