Can Pop ups get around Pop up blockers without a virus?

I was browsing the internet recently, and a link I clicked on Google had a bunch of ads on the web page, and it had a window pop up behind the main browser window despite having pop up blocker enabled on my browser. I hastily closed both the pop up window and the main window, and deleted my cache and cookies. Afterwards I checked Bitdefender which said no suspicious connections occurred, and returned a negative virus scan. Is it possible the web page just had a way to bypass my browser’s pop up blocker?
