Canon 100MM f2.8 L IS USM Lens Loose or Elements Shifting Noise

[ Edited ]
I recently picked up my Cannon 100mm Macro lens and heard a strange noise coming from inside. Sounds like the elements of something has come loose. When you give it a light shake... something doesn't sound right? 

 

I Googled the problem and found this video which shows the exact sound I am hearing from my lens.

Has anybody seen or heard of this? Does your lens sound like this? I never noticed the sound before?
Thanks

Is this noise a common fix with the lens?

I have the lens, it doesn't make any sound at all when shaking it, you need to send it in to Canon
