audio ad pop ups?

Here's a new one, and I wonder if you've encountered it yet.

Go to my Pollhost poll, in my sidebar, and click on View Results. I just did so, using Avant Browser, which blocked a pop up ad from Fastclick and some other ad.

But what can block an audio commercial?

I heard an audio ad, coming through my PC speakers, congratulating me for "winning" an iPod. It must be an audio accompaniment to a visual ad, because the sound commercial instructed me to click on something I did not see, it had been blocked.

The voice sounds like a Martian elf or something.

Try it now and see (hear) if it happens for you. Very weird.
