Add a default popout event

Popout Events allow you to keep viewers moving forward through your content on a path that you control. It also stops them from straying off the path, which can happen if they are allowed to click out of your content or be lead away by ads or related videos that aren’t yours.

Here's a basic view of what a Popout Event will look like:
