Is Ad pop ups technically virus,spy ware?
I went to daily motion and watched soft porn kind of video and many pop ups did occur.
Is there anyway possible that when those pop ups appeared and with the web page we download and get virus of this sort?
Or pop ups are just annoying but harmless thing?

If the pop ups did not continue after you left the page, and you had decent antivirus installed and updated, it's unlikely you got infected with anything.
Do a scan with malware Bytes anti-malware from http://malwarebytes.org (free/demo version is fine...) just to make sure.

some pop-ups are viruses, but some are just advertising purposes! Download a linkscanner and webshield for your browser!
