New YouTube ads showing up

Noticed some non-vid ads showing up on YouTube just now. Not sure how long this has been going and I saw no post that mentioned this recently. Just wanted to make sure Brave Team is aware of this at the very least.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to YouTube
  2. First vid on the list is not a video, but an external link advert.
  3. Refresh if doesn’t show, takes a couple of tries.

Expected result:
Where the first video on recomended list would be, there is instead a advert that is not a video, merely an external link.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.14.84 Chromium: 85.0.4183.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

Here’s a snap shot of it. Its the Chinese wok ad.
Tried posting this on reddit, but the bot keeps removing it.

This started happening for me this morning as well.

Version 1.14.84 Chromium: 85.0.4183.121 (Official Build) (64-bit), same as OP. Browser says this is the latest version.

Everything else in their report is exactly the same as what I am seeing.
