Ad Age lists the top ten viral videos for the week of Jan. 18.
New entries this week are topped by a viral video for Air New Zealand, a funny if borderline distasteful mockumentary on older ladies (a.k.a. cougars) on the hunt for young men. It debuts at number two with more than 832,000 views. Right below it is Google’s entry into the chart, a viral promoting Nexus One that got about 723,000 views. It’s a video of toy ninjas fighting over Google s smart phone created by YouTube stop-motion animation phenom Patrick Boivin. Adidas also managed to break into the chart with the TV spot for its Star Wars Collection. The nifty creative, featured here before, uses moments from the films to depict how wearing shoes or apparel from the line might whisk one to a galaxy far, far away. It pulled in a little more than 517,000 views.
Evian’s devil children on wheels are still at number one, getting nearly 1.2 million views for the week.
Ad Age’s chart includes number of views for the week and percentage change in views for videos that stayed on the chart. The list is compiled by Visible Measures.
