It's hard to beat a love story. After drawing an impressive 74 million views in its debut on the Viral Chart last week, Wrigley's Extra's "The Story of Sara & Juan" is still going strong in the first position, despite dropping to 14.5 million views. The video features Extra gum in the most important moments of a young couple's relationship -- from prom to proposal.
The second-position slot went to a newcomer, Walmart's "The Pioneer Woman Collection," which showcases the retailer's new line of cookware and dinnerware. Samsung's campaign promoting the Galaxy's wireless charging capabilities rose from fifth to third place this week. No Facebook videos made the cut.
A newcomer of note is Barbie's "Imagine the Possibilities," which garnered 8.3 million views. The video shows little girls playing professional roles -- college professor and soccer coach, to name a few -- in front of unsuspecting and amused adults.
Squatty Potty's odd ad featuring ice cream-pooping unicorns and a British-accented prince went down three slots, placing fifth after debuting in second place last week. Beats by Dre's rugby spot "The Game Starts Here" is back on the chart in sixth place with 6.8 million views.
The rest of this week's chart is dominated by new spots such as Nissan's "Day and Night" video about the new Maxima model, and Microsoft's "Growing Underground," showcasing a London agritech startup that uses the tech giant's software solutions to grow food in abandoned WWII bomb shelters.
Walmart's Drew Barrrymore spot dropped to number nine this week, but still has some viral power --this is its sixth week on the chart. Vitaminwater's promotional spot about the brand's music series with The Fader magazine grabbed the last position with 5.7 million views.
