The 2016 UEFA European Championship is lifting brands from Adidas to Hyundai on our most recent Viral Video Chart, led by Nike's campaign starring Christiano Ronaldo with 65 million views in the week through Sunday, according to Visible Measures.
Sprint forced its way onto the chart without a soccer tie-in, however, for its campaign starring Verizon's former "Can You Hear Me Now?" guy.
Ad Age's Viral Video Chart, powered by Visible Measures, focuses on brand-driven social video ad campaigns. Each campaign is measured by True Reach, an MRC accredited metric that includes views from brand-driven and audience-driven social video clips. The data are compiled using the patented Visible Measures platform, a constantly growing repository of analytic data on hundreds of millions of videos tracked across hundreds of online video destinations.
Note: This analysis includes all publicly available video views on branded video content. This chart does not include movie trailers, video game campaigns, TV show, or television network promotions. View counts are incremental by week.
**Indicates percent change in views compared with the same period the week before.
