Why Do My Youtube Video Ads Show On Videos I Have Not Targeted

Hi

I can really do with some help here. I am using youtube video campaigns, I have an in-stream video ad setup and have selected just over 1200 video targets for my ad to be displayed on. So the issue I have is when i check to "see where my ads were shown" and clicking on "placements" I see that adwords have shown my video Ad on videos that are not in my target list and these videos have no relevance to the niche i am targeting.

What is going on here? Thank you.

Are you targeting just YouTube Search & Video networks or added the GDN as well? What are the targeting methods you've been using? Any negative targets you've used?
