Script that will link YouTube videos in much the way MetaFilter does it.

I would like to cobble together a client side script that will display YouTube links more or less like MetaFilter does - as a text link with a small "play" icon after it. Click the words you go to YouTube, click the 'play' thingus and you get an overlay.

MetaFilter's code does some sort of backend stuff that results in both links being actually written to the page - first a plain href to YouTube and then an href wrapped around the little play button.
Yes, this is the result of inheriting a project/workflow with some pretty peculiar and rigid givens.
