The top 10 most-watched ads in Canada according to YouTube
Calgary tops the charts in the latest YouTube Canada Ads Leaderboard, with the Calgary Stampede, Tourism Calgary and a Tide charitable effort putting Alberta’s floods and the province’s recovery in the spotlight.
Launched in June, the Ads Leaderboard is an exclusive partnership between Marketing and Google Canada that charts the most-watched ads in Canada on YouTube.
Aside from the three Alberta flood-themed spots, American ads dominated the list with one notable exception: Tourism Lebanon made an appearance in the number 10 spot.
