With 10.5 million views, Samsung's VR promotional spot "Ostrich" has returned to the Viral Video Chart at No. 5, giving the marketer three placements on this week's list of the most-watched clips. The ad centers around an Ostrich who is transported to another world when he strays from his flock and stumbles into a pair of Samsung VR goggles. Rounding out the electronics giant's three-spot domination are "Unbox Your Phone" at No. 6 with 10 million views and the reigning No. 1 clip "Galaxy S8 Official Introduction" with 30 million views.
