Is it possible to remove adverts from embedded youtube videos on a webpage?

Is there any way to remove adverts from embedded youtube videos on a webpage? I am imagining the answer is no, but I am just asking in case anyone knows of any way to do this. I assume the only way is to get the owner of the video to remove monetisation from the settings for the video, thereby removing the adverts.

Here is an example of a Justin Bieber embedded video (I just went with something I knew would have adverts) and right enough, there is an advert, right over the top.

So if anyone knows of a way to stop adverts from playing, I would be grateful to know. Thanks.

If I remember correctly this was a setting the owner can change.

But if your not the owner of the video you can try this

(function() {
    'use strict';

    document.getElementsByClassName("ytp-pause-overlay ytp-scroll-min")[0].remove();

Open in new window

or add this

Open in new window

This new feature happens when you click on pause
