The simplest method is just to be patient. Wait a few million years and we either make ourselves extinct with global cooling or something, or evolution will take care of it and create something new. And if somehow both of those fail then just wait a bit longer for the Sun to dessicate the planet.

The video shows the outcome from the perspective of the advertiser. That is, Facebook ads are the product that advertisers buy. So there is a product, and it is useless. Facebook proports to sell to advertisers the user's attention, but nothing happens. It's all just a waste of money.
