I've been having the same thing happening to me...every ad I've had on Youtube has been in Spanish.

Guess it is time to burn it down..

Most people don't know this, but if you have ad-block plus, you don't get the ads on YouTube. =D Then you don't have to worry about Mexican Bounty!

Changed here about two years ago, as far as I remember.

Anyhow, I've never had an ad in a different language on youtube.
It could be because in the US they might want to advertise it to the Spanish speaking residents instead of the English speaking?

My guess is that Youtube probably is doing this thing were they put some ads in Spanish because most of the American population is Hispanic. I don't know. I have had a similar thing happen to me, I was listening to Rammstein one time (for those of you who don't know what that is, it is a German Metal Band) and I got a ad that was in German. I think it was some sort of German Super Market. XD It makes sense how my ad was in German, cause the video was in German. But Gangnam Style is in Vietnamese I think and the ad being in Spanish.... my guess is, Youtube is stupid. XD

Not most. A significant portion, but not most by any means.

It probably depends on the type of video too. Obviously, a video in Spanish is more likely to have Spanish ads.

my guess is, Youtube is stupid. XD

Because YouTube knows what languages its users all speak on an individual level...

In Spain, Gungam style means something completely different than it does in Korean or English. In Spanish, papers towels are 100% relevant.
