Ads with a twist: Whoever thought bathroom appliances could be made to look smoulderingly cool? Kerovit did. The Indian bathware brand combined the groovy moves of a Bollywood actress and a bass-heavy soundtrack to top this month's leaderboard. In our third-most viewed ad, a Korean gaming company found a fresh spin to the way celebrity endorsement ads were being shot—and fans loved it. Finally, note that in the top three ads, a compelling soundtrack plays an integral part in the storytelling.
