    Instead of telling us that it's not at the beginning of the video, please tell us where it is. Give us the minute/second marker.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks tree.

    I would discount somewhat the examples in song. Some distortion of normal pronunciation in singing is common.

    But all those spoken examples from American television are very convincing. I guess I've been hearing and using that w-glide unconsciously all my life. As Piscean has pointed out (more than once I think) sometimes we native speakers produce sounds without really noticing them.
