My least favorite is the one where that guy is trying to catch meteorites, although I don't seem to get many ads anymore.

The ads that annoy me the most are the ones that take up the whole screen and play some video when you enter some sites. Other forms of annoying ads are sites with armies of ads jumbled up together and i cant even, i don't even.

Lol, wow I feel ya on this one. I didn't mind the ad at all, at first. But I must have seen it so many times.

I noticed that a lot of online sites, even YouTube, struggle with ad variety. It might have to do with the way the ad system works (and I know a lot of sites rely on the same system) or that the companies might pay for their ad to always be played before a certain video or game for a set amount of time (example: always play 5 hour energy ad before SpecificVideo for a two week period).

Anyway, I hope that the company in charge of the ad system modifies their system to vary up which video ads you see more often to stop the repetitive ads from happening.

Anything that repeats endlessly. So I have a pet hate for a period, before the ads change.

Television adverts are usually cheap, cringy and annoying. There seems to be a loss of imagination when directors come to making them, doing anything they can think of to get your attention, this is usually done by the most annoying way possible. In the UK an infamous advert is Go Compare, featuring a fat man with a moustache singly badly and coming up with annoying speech. The producers actually took this huge wave of hatred to their advantage by producer fake vandalised posters around the UK which people thought were real and started posting photos on the internet. This in fact massively boosted Go Compare as people without thinking essentially advertised it. Still nobody went to Go Compare. There are many examples of bad adverts but also some very thoughtful and entertaining adverts like Cadburys eyebrows one which was very popular. Surveys show that funny and entertaining adverts are 59% more effective than boring or annoying ones.

No, we were all complaining about how the World of Warplanes ad pops up all the time, so obviously we saw it. That's why it's funny. I had to give props, but the best I could think of was an "lol".

AG doesn't have the kind of direct control over the ads, to help vary them up. I believe it's a separate company in charge of the ad system. I think it may be the same company that handles the ad system for YouTube that also does AG. If I'm right I think it's a very large company and many websites use it. YouTube (and pretty much any website I've visited) suffers from the same repetitive ad issue. So until said company/companies improve upon their ad generating algorithm/program (or script?), we will have to see the repetitive video ads.

You had to give a game called 'World of Warplanes' props? I'm sure they already have more than they know what to do with. In fact, I bet they are trying to rid of a few.
