They ran non-skippable video ad for 3 weeks from 6 July until 26 July. To encourage the movie ticket purchase from movie fans, an overlay companion banner linked to its official website was added.

What is Non-Skippable Ad? 

Non-skippable ad is short in-stream video ads that play before, during, or after the main video. They can be 15 to 20 seconds in duration.  

Viewers don’t have the option to skip your ad, therefore this ad allows brands to reach viewers with the entire message. This ad format gives a wide lift in awareness, not only on Youtube but also on video partner sites and apps on the Google display network. 

Because the ads can’t be skipped, these videos are best created with a call-to-action (CTA) so the brands can optimize the attention they do have from the viewer. In other words, you can encourage viewers to click on your ad and receive the desired action from your audience. 

This ad format is recommended to be applied when a brand is aiming for a widespread of the brand message, and they’re confident that the video is creative enough to hold the audience’s attention for the full 15 seconds.
