For me, it's for some game called "Animal Jam". If all the emo anime furry "animation meme" and "Littlest Petshop" videos weren't cringy enough...

Also worth mentioning:
-Other games like Clash of Kings, Episode, Minecraft, The Simpsons Tapped Out and Idle Heroes
-Website links at the bottom (Walmart, Lidl, Marlboro)
-Lego City/Friends/Star Wars/UniKitty sets
-Cartoon Network (RIP Adventure Time 2010-2018)
-Twitter (the one with the bullhorn!!!)
-Carl's Jr (sadly there's only 2 Carl's in town)
-Movie Trailers (that one Jack Black movie with the clock, Bohemian Rhapsody, Wreck It Ralph 2...)
-TV Land (Teachers, Younger)
-Aspen Dental
-Angry Orchard
-Ben & Jerry's
-Amazon Prime

Shouldn't this be posted somewhere other than the San Antonio forum?

There’s one for this fake lottery scratch off app that has really been getting on my nerves lately.

There’s also the ads for TikTok and anything by Smule; I try to hit the skip button as fast as I can when those come on. Agree on the movie trailers, too.

Who watches the ads? I watch YouTube all the time, but I have no idea what any of the ads are. I'm usually clicked over to another tab or browsing the related videos while it plays.

What I don't understand are the ads that have no identifying information in the first 5 seconds. If you know that most everyone is going to skip as soon as they're able, wouldn't you identify your product right up front?

The ones that are a significant length of time. I dont mind watching a couple of minutes to help support the YouTubers. The most I have seen was over an hour, when the video I was trying to watch was 10 minutes. Why in heaven's name would I sit through the ad first in that case especially? It hurts the creator since they arent the ones choosing these long ads.

As a channel creator, I thank you very much.

The "Create your website with Wix" is the most annoying ad of all.
