Shell's musical "Make the Future" campaign came in No. 1 again this week on our Viral Video Chart covering brand campaigns in the seven days through Sunday, accomulating more than 35 million views. The campaign features famous singers including Jennifer Hudson, Steve Aoki, Pixie Lott, Luan Santana, Yemi Alade and Tan WeiWei in a music video for "Best Day Of My Life," highlighting the need for more alternative energy.
Other notable campaigns include Porsche's recap of the 2016 racing season and Sandy Hook Promise's PSA, which gained a significant amount of attention from broadcast news outlets.
This chart includes both organic views by consumers who sought out or otherwise genuinely wanted to watch the work as well as paid views in which the videos appeared as ads.
