Reverse Psychology in Internet Advertising?

What's the algorithm for unskippable ads?  They seem to be trying to force things on me that would NEVER pique my interest.  This does nothing aside from making me despise their ads.

Maybe that's the idea?  lol.  They're like, "Here, watch an ad to which you can absolutely, in no way possible, relate, so you can hate the product for wasting your leisure time."

They're probably paid by the competition to force those ads on me.  They figured I never respond positively to ads, so they'll take advantage of my negative response.

Wouldn't that be hilarious?
