Asia-Pacific YouTube Ads Leaderboard: April 2018

A horror-comedy-love story about epayments takes the top spot, while AIS has three spots in the top 10 for the second month in a row.


The YouTube APAC Ads Leaderboard is a monthly list curated by Google.

Comments from Google: A six-minute short film with a generous dose of horror, comedy and romance takes top spot in this month’s ad leaderboard. In second place is a delightful 35-second ad with a catchy tune and cute animation that makes you thirsty just by watching. K-Pop is also rocking the list this month, with Korean boyband BTS listed twice at #6 and #7.
