Nike Has the Web's Most-Seen Olympics Campaign

Huge Lead for Nike Over No. 2 P&G

Published on .

Official Olympics sponsor Nike is dominating online ads related to the games, according to Visible Measures research into web video related to the Olympics through Sunday. It leads No. 2 Procter & Gamble, another official sponsor, by a large margin, Visible Measures said.

Non-sponsor Under Armour also made the chart, however. That's yet another twist in marketers' ongoing dance with Olympics rules and regulations around sponsorship (or not).

The scoreboard rolls up all the various videos in a given campaign. View counts can encompass either or both paid views and organic views.
