Asia-Pacific YouTube Ads Leaderboard: August 2017

KBank tops the latest monthly list, which also includes The Rock, a trio of phone makers (Samsung, Apple and Xiaomi) and three video-game ads ('Clash of Clans', 'Clash Royale' and 'Garena Blade & Soul').


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

Comments from Google: From Mozart to mobile phones, this month’s list is an eclectic collection of styles and products. There’s a glossy cinematic feel to the ads this time, from KBank’s almost dialogue-free montage (No. 1) to Supercell’s two animated extravaganzas (No. 2 and No. 5). Most ads make a strong impact with their compelling storylines and visual imagery but Apple’s ad (No. 7) reminds us that including a celebrity can work to a brand's advantage in tracking numbers as well.
