In the strange world that we live in, people have come to like advertisements. Heck, we even look forward to them when it comes to the Super Bowl. That's because advertisers are increasingly seeking to entertain as well as push a product. This strange phenomenon has resulted in us ranking ads through various means. YouTube joins in this year with the top 20 ads of the year as decided by page views.
Unsurprisingly, Super Bowl ads were popular this year like always, but they did not take the number one or two spot. The number one ad of the year goes to Nike Football which garnered more than 20 million views since its debut in May.
The second most viewed ad was for Pepsi Max. Debuting in May, it has gained more than 17 million views.
The first Super Bowl ad to show up is from Volkswagen, coming in at number three, who steals the show again with another Star Wars themed ad:
