The youtube channel hasn’t been monetized yet but there are ads already?whether I just realized or missed the news, it turns out that now almost all the videos on YouTube are showing ads.
Whether the channel has been submitted for Adsense monetization or not, all ads appear randomly.
Just like what I experienced on my personal youtube channel which you can access at:

Well, it can’t be helped, people are their platform, so it’s free if they display ads on all videos on Youtube.
