You are lucky that the source is YouTube advertising. However, incase you ever get too many "external" or "other" views in huge numbers, which you have no idea about, it could be someone (competitor) sending bot views to your video (channel) , which will trigger YouTube algorithms to judge those as indeed bot generated views and penalize your channel. Yes, it happens. In any such cases, immediately contact youTube and tell them you are totally unaware of those "external" or "other" views in huge numbers and they will remove all those spammy views, which is a safety move for your channel.
