The data to analyze was collected online, on a randomized between groups experimental basis where the six advertising formats were the independent variable and were changing per experimental group. The collected data was analyzed using SPSS 26, the research found that Overlay ads are the most disliked YouTube advertising format amongst Generation Z.
