Default Annoying full screen Dr. Pepper ad with no way to close it.

I really hate all of the full screen pop up ads, but I understand they help keep the site running. This Dr. Pepper one is absolutely infuriating though. There's no way to close it. I have to reload the site any time my mouse gets anywhere near that ad. Please, please, please stop putting these kinds of ads on the site.

Thanks

I use the mobile version. Less ads and easier to read.

I just wish you could use advanced search with it.

We don't put them on there, the ad company sneaks them in.

If you can screen shot it, we can block it.

Are you on your phone? Tablet? Computer?

What browser and version are you using?

Are you seeing the ad in the forums? On the home page?

If you're on a mobile device, are you using the mobile skin or the full site?

In short: more info please.

Sorry for the delayed reply. I usually just browse the forum from a PC. Using Chrome Version 45.0.2454.85 m

Ad pops up in the forum pages, usually when I'm in the electric onroad section. I'll try to get a screenshot next time it comes up. It just popped up again today. Most full screen ads have a close button somewhere, but this particular one doesn't.

EDIT: I just did a google search for Dr. Pepper, so it would be more likely to serve up this ad and sure enough when I refreshed rctech, there it was.
