Maybe it's the flagging stamina levels in the post-holiday season, or even just the extra strength needed to get yourself into the office after a couple of weeks of parties, but somehow 5-Hour Energy's "Helps Amazing People" landed on Visible Measures' Viral Video Chart this week.
Coming in fourth with 5.5 million views, the ad is a typical one, featuring people doing all sorts of wonderful things like winning a game of chess, giving a rousing speech, ziplining through a forest and dirt biking. The idea is that the energy drink gives you the focus necessary to do those things.
Other new entrants on the chart were MySpace's June video featuring musicians Ciara, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell, created to relaunch the social network at No. 6; cognitive training company Lumosity at No. 8; and Canon's "Swipe," which shows how users can print pictures taken on its cameras using its PIXMA printers, at No. 9.
Topping the chart, not surprisingly, is YouTube's year-end lookback, "What Does 2013 Say?" which enjoys its fourth week on the chart. The six-minute film features 2013's most viral videos, with Jimmy Fallon, Macklemore, Kid President and Jenna Marbles all appearing.
