Will a video ad that is monetized still run as an ad?

I have a video // that I am running both as an advertisement (InStream) and as a public video on my channel. The question is: Can I monetize the video and still have it show up as an InStream advertisement? Reasoning would tell me that Google/YouTube would simply disable the monetization feature of the video when it is displayed as an InStream advertisement. However, this video and another were running 50/50 in a campaign before I monetized this video. Now this video is receiving less than 50/50 (and may have stopped being displayed altogether).
