Don't you just hate video advertisment?

Hate to be that guy, and I can’t stop you from downvoting me if you disagree (or just hate my guts- can’t blame anyone for that), but if everyone used adblock hundreds of websites just like KYM would crash and burn. The reason behind that is we’d be sending a clear message to all current and potential advertisers that they’re wasting their fucking money. The tough but undeniable fact is that a good portion of the places we all love to go on the interwebz simply can’t survive without the revenue. So, they’ll have to scale back or simply disappear.
I know that only a small percentage of internet users to date employ this, and I’m not stupid enough to claim that you don’t have the right to do whatever the fuck you want, but it’s still something you have to consider before making this recommendation to everyone who’s annoyed by ads. For now at least, they’re a necessary evil.

No we are only sending a message to the annoying advertisers.
