Seems to be a new kind of aggessive advertising or even malware, and it might be caused by a recently installed or updateted app on your phone.
First step should be to install and run some push ad network detectors.
This thread's first post by Hadron could help you ...
If you don't get a result with the detectors then there might be a slight chance to catch the culprit app that caused that new kind of pop up ad if you'd use the ADB tool on your PC, running a logcat with USB debugging on your phone.
Wait until the ad pops up.
Run "adb logcat" on PC, then start the ad on your phone's screen.
Now on logcat you'd see the activity which has thrown the ad ... and activity should give away the name of the culprit app.
Note, I've not any experience with the ADB ( Android Debug Bridge
) tool on PC ... maybe someone could chirp in who knows about the usage of the ADB tool.
