Everyone hates YouTube ads. They’re necessary, of course, but they either delay or get in the way of our watching the videos. We’d do away with them altogether if we could.
There is, however, a silver lining. Google, which of course owns YouTube, uses a variety of methods to place the ads. Sometimes they’re based solely on the location of your computer’s IP address. Sometimes, if you’re logged in to Google, they’re based on your search history. And sometimes they’re based on the keywords and descriptions of the video you’re trying to watch. What this all means is that, every once in a while, you are treated to a ridiculous, poorly timed YouTube ad.
