The challenge of Ad-Hoc Video Search (AVS) originates from free-form (i.e., no pre-defined vocabulary) and freestyle (i.e., natural language) query description. Bridging the semantic gap between AVS queries and videos becomes highly difficult as evidenced from the low retrieval accuracy of AVS benchmarking in TRECVID. In this paper, we study a new method to fuse multimodal embeddings which have been derived based on completely disjoint datasets. This method is tested on two datasets for two distinct tasks: on MSR-VTT for unique video retrieval and on V3C1 for multiple videos retrieval.
