An alert message with the following text will be generated:

'Click Allow to watch the video'

Following the instructions will not result in any video being played, just receiving all the browser permissions it requires. The sheer volume of unsolicited advertisements could start to interfere with the normal use of the affected device and closing the browser will have no effect.
