Whether you don't have the time or just can't stand to sit through another ad before your YouTube video loads, reader DannyBR points out a simple solution.
If you ever want to skip a commercial on YouTube when a video starts, refresh the page and the video will start. I always do this 1 to 2 seconds into the ad and it doesn't play again.
It's not a brand new trick, but definitely a potential time and sanity saver.
