The act of avoiding or inevatibility perception of advertisements formed from the simple concept of leaving the room the ad is displayed to change the program channel. Internet users avoid advertisements caused by 3 (three) factors, namely internet media is intended as a media that is more oriented to a specific destination other than entertainment. The second factor is that internet users feel that regular advertisements will slow down access speeds and download processes. The third factor is advertising on the internet at any time can make users click links that appear intentionally or not. This study aims to analyze the determinants of the attitude of avoiding advertisements on Youtube. This research uses quantitative methods with SMART PLS 3.0. The research involving 100 samples found that the act of Avoiding Adverts was not directly affected by the perception of the user's goal being obstructed in enjoying the shows on Youtube and also by the user's skepticism as a moderating effect; Actions to avoid ads are influenced by the clutter of the advertisement when enjoying shows on Youtube, and previous negative experiences both directly and by using the moderation effect. As a recommendation in this study, the use of more specific sample characters (channel owners or hobbyist favourite channel lovers) can contribute more diverse results.
