Tech Marketers Dominate Viral Video Chart

What People Watched the Week of Aug. 24

By Published on .

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Five new videos hit the chart this week, and three of them are from computer makers -- can you tell it's back-to-school season? That's in addition to the two Microsoft videos, which have been mainstays of late. Visible Measures, which compiles the data, noted that the spoofed iPhone "Stalked" spot would have made the chart, but since these are "brand-driven" videos, it was disqualified on a technicality. Rules are rules.

The other two fall into the "potentially unintentionally hilarious infomercial" category, as Visible Measures classifies it. At No. 7 is Aspray -- the all-over deodorant -- good for stinky feet, pits and, yes, butt odor. The No. 9 spot is just hard to take seriously. Don't know what a "winker" is? Check it out and let us know what you think -- are these for real?

And did you notice what's missing from this week's chart? Cadbury's "Eyebrow Dance," after 23 straight weeks of making the top 10.
