@ryanbr Thank you for your attempt to solve this issue but it didn't work so you can remove it because it didn't even block the video like this filter will do:

||evtubescms.phncdn.com^

Note that my filter will not hide everything related to the ad, just the video.

You need to verify that your filter(s) blocks this issue before you close it. It's tricky because the ad is displayed at random times, even with cookies deleted.

we removed the $media option from the whitelist, this should resolve it

@ryanbr /ads_videos/* didn't work as I told you before, I suggested another filter if you listened.

To be clear, nothing at all is removes anything from the ad with the any of the new filters mentioned so far in this issue. I suggest that you revert them and investigate the ad in details.

Can you please act more professional and just ask for specific more information if you need it? What do you need?
