Asia-Pacific YouTube Ads Leaderboard: August 2016

Trailers for movies and video games join Suntory, Bajaj, Head & Shoulders and other brands on this month's list.


Campaign Asia-Pacific is pleased to present the YouTube APAC Ads Leaderboard, a monthly list curated by Google.

Introductory comments from Google:

In Asia-Pacific, well over half (60 percent) of YouTube watch time happens on mobile, but this month’s list shows brands are thinking big on the smallest of screens. There’s a certain cinematic flair on display here: from Ching’s Secret’s list-topping ad, mixing post-apocalyptic visuals with a Bollywood twist, to Suntory’s ad in the No. 2 spot with its swashbuckling fantasy theme. But this month’s list also shows that it’s not just about movie-trailer style videos—and that’s the beauty of the platform: On YouTube, there’s always something for everyone.
