Adblock doesn't work for pre-roll ads. Those are ads played before clips like the ones YouTube and others use.

youtube gives me american ads for some strange reason, i have customized what kind of ads it shows me, maybe there's just no new zealand ads that match my options. not on a vpn either.

It should be illegal for them to o that, if it's not already...
