Youtube Ads Disapproval

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello! I wanted to promote a music video through youtube (at suggestions) but the Youtube disapproved the campaign because it has "adult content". I called costumer service twice and the answer was I can not promote the video if it goes against the google rules. The option they gave me was to edit the video, which the client doesn't want. 

A friend told me I might ask  for a non-familiar approvement, but google costumer service said they have no idea about what is that.

 

Is there any way/solution to promote the video without editing it? Any answer will be appreciated!!!

I think your friend meant "non-family" safe status.   The problem with that is that it's already been classified as adult, and even if it were classified as non-family safe, it still would not be permitted in a video ad.
