Volvo And VW Spots Voted Among Top 5 Greatest YouTube Ads Ever

For its 10th anniversary, YouTube held a contest asking viewers to vote for their favorite ad from the past decade and the results were announced today.

While Turkish Airlines’ “Kobe vs. Messi: The Selfie Shootout” commercial from 2013 nabbed first place, we had two entrants from the automotive world, including runner up Volkswagen with its highly acclaimed 2011 Big Game spot, “The Force” in second place, and Volvo Trucks’ awesome “The Epic Split feat. Van Damme” in fourth place.

The other two spots were taken up by Always #LikeAGirl (3rd) and Dove Real Beauty Sketches | You’re more beautiful than you think (5th).

According to YouTube, combined, these five ads have been watched for over 7.7 million hours.

Two more automotive-related commercials that made it into the Top 20 were “Jeff Gordon: Test Drive | Pepsi Max” and “SWAGGER WAGON | Toyota“.

Watch all of them in our video below (you can click the playlist button on the top left corner to select an ad).
