    What happens when ...

    ... you check out this video:

    https://www.independent.co.uk/life-s...-a9232091.html

    With an ad-blocker, I get a blank screen with raucous music.

    Without ad-blocker, I get two or three obnoxious commercials. It's supposed to be a Welsh ad for Christmas cheer - a family run shop with the owner's two-year old son running the place.

    Same for you?

    I watched this video this afternoon on Youtube and didn't get any commercials at all... just the heartwarming video.
    Let me know if you want me to post it.

    I get one commercial, then the video plays in 3 - 4 second segments interspaced with the "wait circle."

    I didn't even get the raucous music. But a quick Google (highlight text, right click, 'Search Google...") turned up this link

    Worked fine for me. Asked me to turn off my ad blocker but still ran when I said no.
