@ELCNYTROID,
Looking into this – can you confirm that you’re referring to an in-video advertisement? Additionally, can you please tell me what Brave version you’re currently using (in Brave, go to Menu --> About Brave)?

I am referring to an advertisement that comes before a video on YouTube. Brave version: [
Version 1.24.82 Chromium: 90.0.4430.93 (Official Build) (64-bit)
]
