The Top Ten

1 Brawl Stars

While I like Supercell's new Fortnite/Overwatch-esque game, seeing the ad before every video I watch is a bit too much. - PhoebeThunderman

Even though Supercell's new Fortnite/Overwatch-esque game looks cool, stop constantly showing the unskippable ads. - PhoebeThunderman

2 eBates


Thank goodness the Grinch is gone. Now some old ladies are trying to beg me to download eBates. I am not, and never will be, a couponer. - PhoebeThunderman

Love Starbucks, but stop telling me to download your app after every video. - PhoebeThunderman

@PhoebeThunderman, May I ask where is Tik Tok to be found on the list? - B1ueNew

4 Sprint

That "can you hear me now" tool and that stupid robot are stalking me... Isn't T.V. enough for spreading your cancerous commercials? - PhoebeThunderman

Can I just punch that robot now? - PhoebeThunderman

5 Amazon, commonly known as Amazon, is an American electronic commerce and cloud computing company that was founded on July 5, 1994, by Jeff Bezos and is based in Seattle, Washington.

Why not grammar ly? They have over 100 ads.

6 Papa John's

Yep, still without racist alt-right Papa John... - PhoebeThunderman

Still without racist, alt-right Papa John. Banner ads still annoying otherwise. - PhoebeThunderman

7 Animation Schools

Just because I love cartoons, doesn't mean I want to go to an animation school! Animation is complicated, believe it or not. And those Full Sail ads are getting on my nerves. - PhoebeThunderman

8 Flickr Flickr is an image hosting service and video hosting service. It was created by Ludicorp in 2004. It has changed ownership several times and has been owned by SmugMug since April 2018.The Verge reported in March 2013 that Flickr had a total of 87 million registered members and more than 3.5 million more.

Who even uses Flickr anymore? - PhoebeThunderman

9 Kik

Kik was never relevant. Using screenshots from Invader Zim and the movie "Igor" in the banner ads isn't helping either. - PhoebeThunderman

10 Quora Quora Product Image

Quora's good - darthvadern

I don’t see any of these ads. - MrCoolC
