I think it's a cricket ad with the sound of a bat hitting a ball, and a crowd cheering. The ad is also one which appears right at the bottom of the page,...

Video ads on hubpages now? I find them annoying and intrusive do you?I was checking out a couple of my hubs today to see if they needed some attention and a blaring Wal-mart ad comes on as I am scrolling down. I find this highly intrusive on the hubs and will make people click away. Not...
