Youtube is a video sharing platform which involves content creators (Youtubers) making videos that the public (viewers) can watch on this website for free.  Some videos get a ton of views which can result in the creator of that video being payed a decent amount of money from Youtube depending on how many views they are getting.  When these videos get a lot of views, Youtubers have the option to play advertisements within their videos which ad companies pay per ad click or ad view.
