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

Comments from Google:

This month’s Leaderboard shows that telling great stories rather than pushing products pays off on YouTube. The brands on the list tackle this challenge with different styles and lengths: from celebrating cultural moments such as LG India’s tribute to Mother’s Day, to reimagining a classic love story in Samsung Vietnam’s short film for Galaxy A 2017 to creating an innovative rap to fuel Flipkart India’s Big 10 Sale competition.
