Getting around an HTML in-page pop-up ad?

Trying to watch a video on a website, but there is a large CPA (Cost per action/PPA) popover that is sitting on the page blocking the view of the video in question.

"(With firefox:)

Install Greasemonkey, add it this script: CPAlead remover & add http://tvrulez.com/* to the authorized pages of the script

(I have try with Adblock Plus & NoScript without result... The better result I got is to add @@|http://www.cpalead.com/mygateway.php?pub=* to adblock filters, but the overlay remains...)"

Another simple trick is that if you can figure out the hostname of the service that serves this annoying content, and it is different from the actual content provider that serves what you want, you can redirect the annoying server hostname to 127.0.0.1. Then, any content that could load annoying scripts or video ads will simply never load.
