Asia-Pacific YouTube Ads Leaderboard: March 2017

Musical numbers from Koncept, Indiabulls Home Loans and AU lead a list that also includes AirAsia, Kirin, Maybelline and Xiaomi.


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

Commentary from Gooogle:

The idea of using songs to enhance a brand’s message is at least as old as radio adverts, but March’s ads leaderboard shows the tactic clearly still works today. Thai furniture brand Koncept made it to the top of the charts using a hybrid ad / music video with popular Thai band Room 39. In the No. 2 slot, Indiabulls Home Loans’ minute-long ad featuring a song by Arijit Singh was clearly a hit with consumers. Japanese brand, AU, at No. 3 scored well with an extended version of its TV ad featuring the Japanese national soccer team’s official 2017 song.
