Shared Viral Ad Videos 2015

Piggybacking of Adweek’s roundup of the most shared viral ad videos so far this year. Over the past 6 and 3/4 months we’ve seen all sorts of adverts come out of the woodwork. We gorged on the Superbowl ad fiesta, indulged in the Cannes Lions lineup and seen some stand-out adverts from all kinds of competition, ranging from the Clios to the Chip Shop Awards. The videos below are listed in ascending order, with details of viewership & shared numbers. The sharing numbers have been calculated over all social media channels (except Youtube), mostly Facebook. Whereas the viewership numbers are based solely on Youtube numbers. It’s the shared numbers that we’re taking note of in this list. For example, the new Hunger Games trailer for Mockingjay Part 2 came out on last Thursday and has already garnered more than 8.5 million views on Youtube and over 134,000 shares on Facebook & Twitter combined. Let’s have a looksy at who ranks where.
