YouTube’s All-Time Top 5 Most Popular Ads (videos)

Ad of the decade!

As part of YouTube’s 10th anniversary celebrations the online video site recently asked its users to vote for their favorite ad over the past decade – and the verdict is in. Voters submitted their preferences in droves and competition was fierce but, in the end, Turkish Airline’s “Kobe vs. Messi: The Selfie Shootout” captured the title of Ad of the Decade.

While the ad wasn’t critically lauded, apparently it has been a massive hit with viewers, chalking up over 140 million views to date, nearly twice the views of any of the other top contenders. <source>

Here are the top 5 ads of the past decade as decided by the voters – starting with #5 through to top spot:

#5 Dove “Real Beauty Sketches”

#4 Volvo Trucks “The Epic Split feat. Van Damme”

#3 Always “#LikeAGirl”

#2 Volkswagen “The Force”

#1 Turkish Airlines “Kobe vs. Messi: The Selfie Shootout”

Do you agree? Which is your favorite?
