Do you remember the good ol’ days when YouTube didn’t have any ads yet? Or the slightly worse but still pretty good days when there weren’t any annoying pop up ads that stayed on top of your video? Or the definitely worse but still pretty cool days when you could skip every commercial after five second days? What ever happened to that. Now it’s ads on ads on ads.
When do we know when the ad stops and when the video starts?
