I can't publish entry to the Jack Daniels contest.. Answered

I am trying to enter the Jack Daniels contest...I have never published anything on this site before...I entered the link as http://youtu.be/G_mG1iqE8DQ   and the link works, but when I hit "publish" it says I need to enter an embed code...I thought the link was the embed code...I don't know what I'm doing wrong

When you go to YouTube and look at your video, click the button below it labeled Share. Then click the button labeled Embed. Copy the block of XML code that is displayed.

That youtu.be address is a short url for the webpage of the youtube video - the embed code allows embedding the video directly into other pages, like kelsey has done in the reply below vvvvv
