Top Ten Annoying Things About YouTube Ads

The Top Ten

1 Unskippable ads

Most of the ads that I see are unskippable, which is complete obnoxious and annoying to me. I always see unskippable ones, but the only one I saw that you can skip is that stupid Garnier one with a stupid lady turning from bad to beautiful by just switching sides from behind, which doesn't make any sense AT ALL. - Jliby30

They are annoying especially the 30 seconds one - jbella9000

Some are just a trailer to a movie - jbella9000

Every time on every video it's the unskippable Power Rangers trailer OR something promoting Nickelodeon. This really makes me want to upgrade to YT Red - PhoebeThunderman

2 We are trying to watch the video not annoying ads.

I will be half way through a video and then it stops to show me an ad - Jonerman

I agree with this. I'm here to watch my favorite things, not crap that I hate. - Jliby30

Again with the "everything should be free" meme. Grow up. How do you think stuff gets paid for? Should someone supply you with entertainment totally gratis?

3 There are app store links on the bottom of the video

I scroll down to find more videos, and lo and behold, a banner ad to download some strategy game or shopping app. - PhoebeThunderman

4 They're inappropriate

I got an ad about condoms once - scarmark

I cannot go anywhere on any website without seeing such inappropriate ads. I'm watching a SFW video, mind you! "Pornography in Spanish"
"Date Asian Women"
"Come Play, My Lord" (anime RPG ads)
"Say No to Drunk Driving"
"Are You A Criminal? " - PhoebeThunderman

5 They appear a lot on video games.
6 When you're listening to a song to sleep and then ads wake you up.

Yes! I hate it when I put on a Three Days Grace playlist, and they play an advertisement before every single song! It's so annoying! No, I do not want to be woken up by some lady and listen to her talk about how good Pampers diapers are, I wanna listen to music. So that's why I use the music app now!

Ikr! I was listening to a playlist of soft Linkin Park songs on YouTube, but when it changed to another song, an ad came up and ruined it! - NikBrusk

7 The same ads appear 50 times.

Every time when I click on a video it always shows me this ad and its really annoying - jbella9000

That happened to me once while watching Buzzfeed stuff and Rough Night kept coming up every 67394 times. ANNOYING!

There are two ads that appear SO FLIPPIN MUCH! I hate it. - 906389

Live.me and Mobile Strike links on the bottom of the video. I don't even care for those apps - PhoebeThunderman

8 It's inappropriate for the age group.

Children go on YouTube nowadays - what if they end up getting suggestive ads? - Entranced98

I once got an ad for kids nursery rhymes on a Game Grumps video, and I keep getting UNSKIPPABLE scary movie ads on non-scary videos. - PhoebeThunderman

Watching Jimmy Fallon clips, and before every single one is an ad for either Henry Danger or The Loud House. And of course, scary and R-rated movie trailers on stuff like Sesame Street. - PhoebeThunderman

9 We still don't buy their stuff.

Yep. I'm not buying anything that I see, especially Culturelle Kids probiotics which to me is only for kids and not teens because I'm a teenager and not a kid. - Jliby30

10 YouTube does nothing about it.

The Contenders

11 Appears a lot on websites.
12 Waste of time watching ads.
13 YouTube actually promote ads.

That's why those stupid good-for-nothing gaming youtubers are getting income! - MChkflaguard_Yt

14 The ads are louder than the videos V 2 Comments
15 They're Irrelevant to the Actual Video

In other words, they're completely off-topic to video they're showing. For example, when the video is an episode of a children's cartoon, the ad they show is a trailer to an R-rated movie. - anonygirl

I hate that the Nickelodeon ads are on EVERY VIDEO, including videos that are strictly for adults/older audiences.

And unskippable scary movie trailers on stuff like Sesame Street and school related videos. - PhoebeThunderman

16 The ad buffers
17 We Could Always Spend Money to Watch Popular YouTube Videos

This would be a billion times worse than ads for viewers, YouTubers and even the site itself. With nearly every YouTube video being free to watch for such a long time, viewers would obviously be feeling a bit ripped off and some wouldn't watch the videos you need to pay for. Less clicks = less money for YouTubers and massive losses for Google! - Entranced98

Even if we didn't want to. - anonygirl

18 I am not Interested in the Type of Ad They're Showing V 1 Comment
19 The same ad appears on every video you click
20 Strategy games are everywhere

I am tired of all the Clash of War Kings games and their ads! They are everywhere! - PhoebeThunderman
