Excedrin Refuses to Let Apple, Samsung and LG Have the Entire Viral Video Chart

Published on .

All the usual suspects again make strong showings on our weekly chart of the most-viewed brand video campaigns, especially in a week following new product announcements by Apple. But also as usual, an interloper or two refused to let tech companies get all the attention.

Our chart includes both organic views initiated by curious viewers and paid ads such as pre-roll placements.

Ad Age's Viral Video Chart, powered by Visible Measures, focuses on brand-driven social video ad campaigns. Each campaign is measured by True Reach, an MRC accredited metric that includes views from brand-driven and audience-driven social video clips. The data are compiled using the patented Visible Measures platform, a constantly growing repository of analytic data on hundreds of millions of videos tracked across hundreds of online video destinations.

Note: This analysis includes all publicly available video views on branded video content. This chart does not include movie trailers, video game campaigns, TV show, or television network promotions. View counts are incremental by week.

**Indicates percent change in views compared with the same period the week before.
