Canada’s Hottest Ads – Sidney Crosby’s winning smile

Simon Creet reviews the sporty spots in the latest Top 10 YouTube ads in Canada

While there are no Blue Jays spots in this latest YouTube Canada Ads Leaderboard, The Hive’s Simon Creet is no less enthusiastic about the varied and compelling ads that Tim Hortons and EA Sports have produced. However, not every ad with a sports celebrity makes the grade in Creet’s mind.

Note: This ranking indicates which ads were most watched within Canada. To be included on this ranking, a video must be listed as an ad on YouTube. While Google does not make Canadian viewer statistics available, it determines this ranking with a process that accounts for paid and organic views and how much of a given video viewers watch.
