Intrusive noisy advert or Reply Privately

Anyone else getting a repetitive noisy video advert which is really intrusive- exactly the sort of thing that would make any sane person vow never to utilise whatever product is being promoted. It repeats every time you change a page.
How long are we stuck with this for and is it the first of many ?

Yes I am. Couldn't work out what it was advertising though. It started with drumming then some awful rap music. I can't think of anything better to drive people away from this site, apart from maybe a speech (in Latin) by Jacob Rees-Mogg!

I've not seen this ad. There certainly should not be any auto-run video ads on the site

Okay I have had this ad myself now. It's an auto-run video embedded into a normal banner for 'Visit Portugal'. Clearly this is not accepted advertising practice and I have cancelled my Portuguese holiday Tongue
I've informed the ad people to get it banned. The ad mentioned in the other thread has already been banned.
Cheers.... Steve
