The Ads Audiences Choose to Watch

Posted on: September 14th, 2011

So many people in our country use commercial breaks to grab a snack, go to the restroom, or just mute the TV for silence. But what about those commercials that grab people’s attention and have them stay in their seats for just one more minute? Or better yet, the advertisements that become Youtube sensations! What commercials have you found so engaging, hilarious, or entertaining that you’ve searched for them on Youtube to share with your friends? Here are some that others have searched resulting in the top ten viral video advertisements of all time.

Two advertisement campaigns have been able to gain massive amounts of publicity just based on weekly Youtube views. Blendtec’s “Will It Blend” and Evian’s “Live Young” are the only campaigns in viewer history to come close to receiving over 100 million views. In fact, they are the only two to greatly exceed that number! While these ads aren’t brand new, they still aren’t going anywhere. People seek out these commercials 700,000 to over 1.1 million times a week.

Old Spice has also been very successful in the realm of Youtube commercial searching with three campaigns on the top ten list.  Volkswagen, Pepsi, and Microsoft are among others to hit the big time views. What is it about these commercials that make them so intriguing to where people are still watching them consistently on Youtube? Is it that some of them are so absurdly creative that people insist on sharing the fun with their friends? Evian certainly has that going for them with hipster roller skating babies.
