YouTube has announced their most popular video productions of the year and we have them for you. 2015 churned out all sorts of amazing creativity and these spots are just the tip of the iceberg. And what’s noteworthy about these spots is that nearly two-thirds of their 470 million views were on mobile.
The most popular video production, with over 91 million views, is this Super Bowl ad for Clash of Clans starring Liam Neeson. It’s a great parody of the Taken movies – only this time Liam almost loses it over a video game loss.
The second most popular video production is this piece from Hyundai. Stephanie from Houston misses her astronaut father working at the International Space Station. Watch how her special message, written by 11Hyundai Genesis, was delivered to her father in space. And as the icing on the cake, this message was officially acknowledged as “The largest tire track image” by the Guinne ss World Records!
Here’s the third most popular video production – from the AdCouncil. While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues.
The fourth most popular video is this ad from Boom Beach – AKA the Boom Beach Speech. So just why was it so popular? There’s a comment on the YouTube page that says the video has almost 50 million views simply because “everyone comes here to complain about the 50m times they see this advertisement, for this cruddy game.” Whatever the reason, it’s working.
The fifth most popular video production – this one from Adidas – rounds out the Top 5 Most Popular Video Productions of 2015. In their words: “No one ever created anything new by trying to be someone else. Leo Messi, the greatest player in the history of football, challenges you to make your own path and unfollow him in pursuit of creating your own game.”
