New #LikeaGirl Video Hammers the Competition on the Viral Chart

Duracell and Samsung Ride Emotions to Success

By Published on .

The new iteration of Always' #LikeAGirl campaign shot to the top of our weekly Viral Video Chart, accumulating more than 16 million views in the week ending Sunday, according to Visible Measures.

#LikeAGirl debuted last summer to overnight success. A video challenging notions that it was bad to throw or run "like a girl" took over web video and eventually earned a Super Bowl slot and honors at festivals including D&AD in London and the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

The new installment, "Unstoppable" from Leo Burnett, chronicles the challenges young women face, especially as they go through puberty. In order to visually represent the limitations each woman is presented with, the girls write down their struggles on white cardboard boxes and consequently hit and kick them to show that those words shouldn't control them.

Continuing the emtotional theme, Samsung's new video "We are Greater Than I," created in parternship with the World Surf League, depicts the highs and lows of the surfing community. Its 4-million-plus views were enough to break onto the chart at No. 7.

Duracell's "The Teddy Bear" -- about a father, a daughter and a battery-powered bear -- holds onto the No. 2 from last week, while "The Google App" and Samsung's "Wash Happy" also maintain position. Nike's star-studded "Find Your Fast" slipped two spots to No. 8.
