An unstoppable video ad. I wasn't able to get the url for it, but it was an ad for Hitachi. The audio was off by default, but it was still surprising.

So uh... bill, any chance you can look into that, please?

Okay I managed to see it again. This is the code it loaded.

( video id="AVcontent" webkit-playsinline="" muted="true" style="width: 100%; height: 100%; display: block; position: absolute; z-index: 0;" src="https://storage.selectmedia.asia/Campaign/HitachiS... ) ( /video )

I have adblock turned off for this site, but this kind of crap shouldn't be allowed by google. There isn't even an X button to tell Adwords to not show me the ad again. Ugh. :(

Is your complaint that you can't stop the video?

I don't think I have control over whether a video ad has a pause button or not. I think I can block a specific ad and I did find 12 Hitachi video ads. If I did block an ad, I suspect that would be a temporary solution as any new ads might have the same issue. Also, the Hitachi video ads I found all had pause buttons (lower left if you hover over them).

It's OK with me if you want to use an ad blocker. I use one myself (not here because I'm subscribed but on other sites). I understand. Ads suck. Really, the problem is that the Internet is free and this has ultimately ruined it (independent website operators can't make enough to survive, big players are making money by doing creepy privacy-invading things, etc.)

My complaint is that no video ads should EVER start playing by default. I can deal with text ads, and banner ads. But video ads that start without asking? No.

I don't want to use an adblocker here. I can't sub at the moment and I also don't want you to lose the small amount of money you get from my visits. :(
