Comments from Google:

This month’s leaderboard reflects the diversity of content on YouTube itself: from LG’s mesmerising ad (apologies in advance, arachnophobes) to KFCs “his” and “hers” sides of the same story to Nike India’s hypnotic celebration of women and sport. With a wide range of very different ads from across the region, the list shows that Asian brands are testing the boundaries of digital video: using the immediate feedback from their online viewers to “fail fast” and experiment with new ways of telling stories.
