Beats' Star-Studded 'Got No Strings' Goes Viral but Can't Top Nintendo Switch Campaign
Beats' celebrity-driven cordless-headphone campaign "Got No Strings," the brand's first work from Anomaly since a creative review this year, made a strong showing on this week's Viral Video Chart, racking up 16.6 million paid and organic views, according to Visible Measures.

But that wasn't enough to overwhelm the curiosity around, and paid ad spending for, Nintendo's new Switch console, whose introductory campaign piled up 38.4 million views in the same seven-day span.
