Ok. Now, I know ads will be on all site but this is really weird because it does not even allow me to cancel out of the video. I have to close it.

Go to Link

It auto loads a Biden ad. You cannot close it. You cannot see it. It just runs. I understand marketing but there is no way around it. I have an ad-blocker running. It is driving me nuts!!!

Can anyone else please confirm this because this sucks....

This is not something purchased is it????

Clicked your link. I just get an ad saying there are hot and steamy masked individuals within a reasonable radius of travel from my current location.

I dunno man *shrug*

If you don’t have a subscription to ad-free YouTube you will get ads that you can’t close. I very reluctantly pay the $15 for no ads. It sucks but I don’t have to see Biden ads.

You can generally click off them after 5 seconds for most ads, a very few won't let you click past after the 5 seconds.

I get the youtube homepage lacking in anything to do with biden or ads, just the long stream of garbage that is the youtube homepage.

Haha man and little did you know a small portion goes back to Biden.
Just wanted to point that out. When you pay a premium you are also paying those that pay to have ads. It is a tit for tat kinda thing.

Nothing exists that would chase supporters away from the dEmocrat party faster than a biden advert

“Vote for THIS”.

Nope.

Apparently they play Biden Ad's to prisoners in Guantanamo to get them to talk...

I just get a load of car videos, same as I always do on YouTube.

Maybe you've just watched 1 too many Biden videos and they trend for you?

And I see nothing, because Ghostery, uBlock Origin and DuckDuckGo's add-ons work wonders even on YouTube. DDG's is actually substantially better at plugging the leftover gaps from the others, much more so than the Disconnect one I was using previously. Also less resource hoggy in the browser (I use Firefox)

But yeah, there's ways around ads on YouTube and they're not secret by any means.

All I care about is not seeing ads, I pay for ad free..worth it.

Adblockers are free, saves you $15 that way. Just sayin', I don't understand the brush off there.

I was on YouTube a couple nights ago and every video had at least one Biden ad. But it’s to be expected I guess.

Glad there is a thread because it's absolutely nuts!! The Biden coc aine one is so ridiculous!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

Funny ATS edits out cocaina but the God Donald can say it all he wants. Biden too. 😂

I wonder if the media will cover this Marshall law YouTube ad control tomorrow. Seems very North Korea like...

Just read the comments, it's not an ad, per se, it's his YouTube channel, they're all his uploads, and the option of "not interested" is gone when you right click on it on YouTube.com homepage. So Trump and YouTube have done something special together for sure. I watch a lot of YouTube this is definitely very unusual.

S&F

Wait OP, are yours loading ads endorsed by Biden or Trump?? Mine is loading Trump ads taking hits at Biden and it's on the level of a high school video production c grade horror movie. "TheBidening"

That would be crazy if yours are locked in on Biden ads....

It's getting very ann **My name is Joe Biden. Popcorn! ** oying the way they shove them in mid **The drone engineer was fired ** dle of every video. It's surprising we don't see the same number of Trump ads. /sarc

I get a few of them. But I mostly get hit with non-english ads.

Like others have stated, no auto play here.
Today the first video listed is a trunk ad, but I don't click on ads because I don't want to watch them.

Get the browser called "brave".
