I always assume that intrusive ads like this will be deceptive: the advertising will be false, the product/service promoted will be unrelated to the one advertised, and/or the site linked will attempt to install malware or adware. So I never click on them. If I am genuinely interested in what is advertised then sometimes I will do my own search to try to find the product.
Sometimes on a UNIX/Linux box I'll follow the link to see if it is to a malware site. If so, or if the ads are extremely intrusive, then I'll enter the target site and the ad serving site(s) in my firewall exclusion rules - especially on Windows boxes - to prevent any other web site from displaying their content.
