The Top 20 Most Popular Super Bowl Ads on YouTube

The Top 20 Most Popular Super Bowl Ads on YouTube

Are you ready for Super Bowl 51? While most will be watching for the game itself, many others will tune in to watch the commercials.

To help get us ready for the Super Bowl, YouTube has put out a new AdBlitz 10-year anniversary report, in which they name the top 20 most popular Super Bowl ads on YouTube for the past nine years.

Crazy stat #1: These top 20 Super Bowl ads have been watched for a combined 440 million minutes, or the equivalent of watching the Super Bowl 1.8 million times.

Budweiser and Volkswagen appear on the list most often, with four ads each.

Here they are:

1. Budweiser: “Puppy Love” (2014)

2. Clash of Clans: “Revenge” (2015)
