Most Viewed Video Ads: May / Week 2

Week 2 of May puts Hulu on the top spot for the Most Viewed Video Ads chart. The campaign, for Hulu’s ad-free subscription, begins as one of the classic Old Spice ads with Isaiah Mustafa. However, in a comedic twist, it turns out that it is actually “a Hulu ad to tell you that you should get Hulu with no ads.” This is Hulu’s 10th spot on the chart in 2019, and their first time in the top spot since October 2018.

Hasbro has taken this week’s chart by storm, with three separate campaigns taking the six, seven, and eight spots. These campaigns include new products from the gaming and toy company like Chow Crown and Zoops, and a campaign featuring some classics, like Twister, Jenga, and Monopoly. Check out the top 3 videos below as well at the full chart at the bottom:




Coming in first place is Hulu. Isaiah Mustafa reminds us that we should be into Hulu, but not into ads.




Coming in second place is Google, detailing that “work uninterrupted” isn’t always as easy as it seems. The comedic ad shows a business man on a webcam meeting while a child opens the office door (#worknightmare). Surely something that parents working from home can relate to. Google’s message is to help you get more (work) done, and be in the moment for the moments that matter most.




For more than 75 years the Velux Group has created better living environments by bringing daylight and fresh air into people’s homes all over the world. Their products help create bright, healthy, energy-efficient places in which to live, work, learn and play. This authentic and inspiring ad aims to get children to experience the world outside. We spend 90% of our life indoors, without enough daylight or fresh air. Isn’t it time to let nature back into our homes?
