Google Places Needs to Improve Videos

Once again we must give Places a Shout Out for allowing the upload of five videos to the listing.  However, these videos, unlike even pictures, have absolutely zero appeal sitting there with no description.  At least with a picture, you have the ability to show a product, an emotion, your good looking staff, your storefront.  With the video icons, the visitor has no idea what is on the video, so no incentive to spend a few minutes taking a look.

The answer seems so simple.  A Title or even a short description for each video would make this section of the listing come alive, be useful, and improve the visitor experience.
