Asia-Pacific YouTube Ads Leaderboard: April 2017

A germ-fighting anthem from Biore Vietnam leads the list, which also includes an 11-minute film from Toyota Taiwan as well as Samsung, Royal Clash and Amazon.


Campaign Asia-Pacific presents the Asia-Pacific YouTube Ads Leaderboard, a monthly list curated by Google.

Commentary from Google:

This month’s list has a cinematic feel, with most of the brands taking the time to tell far longer stories than the traditional 30-second spot on TV; Toyota Taiwan’s ad comes in at more than 11 minutes. From Biore’s cute cartoon visuals to Maybelline's partnership with Daboyway and Urassaya Sperbund to AIG’s arresting fantasy of the All Blacks averting disasters across Tokyo, each brand here found a different way to tell its story in a visually pleasing way. That said, shorter ads are still finding success, with Royal Clash and Amazon India’s short spots showing that repurposing made-for-TV content can also work well on YouTube.
