Brave browser shows ad in youtube even after keeping shields turned on

Description of the issue:
I saw ad on youtube while browsing brave after a long time. :grinning: :grinning: . I would like to know how that was possible.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. I played a playlist on youtube and the first video as ad.
  2. It was a kickstarter ad. All the shields were turned on.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
The video should have been played but instead the ad was shown.

Reproduces how often:
Refreshing the page or clicking on the same video didnโ€™t again show the ad.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Ubuntu 18.04
Version 1.9.80 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)
