YouTube Looks Back at the Best Video Ads of 2010


Today, the YouTube Blog took an informal poll of its own team and industry reporters — including Zach Rodgers of ClickZ — to find out their favorite ads of the year.

On top of the list was “Old Spice | The Man Your Man Could Smell Like,” with more than 25 million views. Yes, he’s still on a horse.

Another YouTube ad in the list is Toyota’s “Swagger Wagon,” with 7.6 million views.


A third YouTube ad in the list is one for Toy Story 3, “Lots-o-Huggin’ Bear Commercial (circa 1983),” with 1.2 million views.

Rogers said, “We loved Pixar’s phony retro toy ads promoting Toy Story 3. The ‘Huggin’ Toys’ videos were made to resemble toy ads circa 1983 — complete with VHS tape static crawling along the bottom of the screen.”
