Weird, I get no pop ups at all.

I'm using chrome if that matters.

Maybe try a pop up blocker or running your anti virus software?

Well a quick search shows that "vignette" is referring to a page for mobile ads, so unless you have some sort of adblocker on your phone then it seems normal. I know RCC has Google ads but I don't know about the mobile experience for the site.
