Phones, cars, tech: The usual suspects are dominating online video views

Published on .

Only one ad campaign was new on the Viral Video Chart this week, demonstrating the commitment of the usual suspects to keep on spending on video views. It's as vivid a reminder as ever that this chart tracks both "organic" views, the sort many people would think of when they hear something went viral, and paid views, like pre-roll and other ad placements.

The newcomer this week, moreover, is Samsung—a Viral Video Chart regular.
