The Asian work on the list includes:
- At No. 3: A South Korean take on West Side Story for Kolon Sport (above)

YouTube said the list represents the 10 ads that "resonated most" with viewers in the region. "The Leaderboard celebrates the brands and creatives that performed best with audiences across the region, through a combination of popularity (organic views) and promotion (paid views)," according to a press statement. Note that number of views listed on each video's YouTube page is a global number, so those don't match the order of the APAC top 10.
The rest of the APAC top 10 is as follows:
At No. 1: Samsung's Galaxy S5 introduction
At No. 2: The stunning "second a day" video from Save the Children UK—not to be missed.
At No. 4: Budweiser's 'Puppy love' Super Bowl ad
At No. 5: A Nike Super Bowl ad
At No. 7: SodaStream's Super Bowl ad
