HI Kosha,

Good Morning!

You can preview your ad by clicking on the video thumbnail below the ad name (All Video Campaigns / Your_Campaign_Name / Ads tab). You will see a layer with a preview mockup and on the top right corner you will see a "View live on YouTube" button. That will open a preview at video.
But there is not way to actually go to a placement & see the live ads.

Hope this helps!

@Robin Sidana   is correct here. However, it sounds like the client just wants to be reassured that it's working.  I would suggest telling them login to their YouTube account, select the video being sponsored in the Creator Studio, and then select Realtime Analytics. They'll literally be able to see the views coming in.  It breaks down the last 60 minutes and the last 48 hours.
