Another option for those who don't/can't run ad blockers: Invidious (https://github.com/iv-org/invidious)
It's a proxy server for YouTube. You install this on a server from your choice and it serves a minimal YouTube-like UI without any ads or other obnoxiousness. You can test-drive it by using public instances but those are often overloaded so I recommend running your own.
No. Just no.
