hmm thanks for that info. I use adblock to block those pesky pop ups, but never experienced the unskippable ads yet. As much as I support ads, I hate that they can waste a whole 30 seconds of my life, especially with my crappy connection.

Complete PR at work.

Got to love the %

Example: 75% who watch a full ad are more engaged?

75% out of what? 10 people?

Being forced to watch an AD doesn't mean the AD makes you want to watch the rest of the video.

I click on a video for battlefield bad company 2, uploaded by a very popular person.

A tampon ad pops up that I can't skip for the first 10 seconds.

Now, for some reason, I'm more engaged in the video I wanted to watch anyway.
