Closing Brave ads cause MPC to start playing

Description of the issue:
I have a video paused and minimized on windows media player classic (MPC-HC), saving it for later to watch. But every time a Brave ad pops up, and I click close, mpc starts playing again. Can’t figure out why this is happening. It doesn’t seem to matter if mpc is minimized or not, nor does it matter if I have other programs maximized.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Play a video on Windows Media Player Classic (MPC-HC)
  2. Pause video
  3. Wait for Brave ad to pop up
  4. Click close

Expected result:
For the ad to close without affecting any other program.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
[Version 1.9.80 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Additional Information:
Running an amd rx590 gpu with up to date drivers, and Windows 10 Pro with current updates as well. Media Player Classic (MPC-HC) is version 1.9.4.1 (23a2dc3c1), Compiler MSVC v.19.16.27040, LAV Filters 0.74.1.34,

Closing BAT ad somehow will delete my video files playing in MPC-HC.
