Viral Video Chart: Roller Babies' Reign Ends, Microsoft in Top Spot

What People Watched the Week of Aug. 10

By Published on .

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- What's more popular than "Roller Babies"? The world's largest Slip 'n Slide. Microsoft's "Megawoosh" campaign has successfully displaced Evian at the top of the Viral Video Chart, with almost 2.3 million views. Other newcomers include the "Acrobuttocks" campaign, a spoof on Levi's "Guys Backflip Into Jeans" and Ray-Ban's "Guy Catches Glasses With Face" virals, in which people catch laptops between their butt cheeks; an Avril Lavigne-starring perfume promotion (celebrity still sells); and "Bikini Cinema," a campaign for 1690 Swimwear.

About the last campaign, perhaps Matt Cutler, VP at Visible Measures, said it best: "It's a little painful to watch, but it's hard to argue with the creative 'purity' here ... no gimmicks, no artifice, no subtlety. The comment stream is pretty much what you expect -- and far from on message -- and I can't help but wonder how this connects with the target audience (presumably women who can wear their bikinis)."
