I 10 video più cliccati del 2014
November 2014. Ads created around this year’s World Cup dominate a list of the most shared online ads of the year, released today by marketing technology company Unruly…
A fifth of this year’s Top Global Social Video Ads Chart were either World Cup-themed or created by sponsors of the famous soccer spectacle, with Activia’s collaboration with Colombian pop princess Shakira for the video “La La La” claiming the number one spot.
The ad has attracted 5,819,822 shares across Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere since its launch in May, making it not only 2014’s landslide winner ahead of 20th Century Fox’s “Devil Baby Attack” (2,153,236 shares), but also the most shared ad of all time. VW’s 2011 Super Bowl ad, “The Force” (5,278,399 shares) had previously held the record for more than three years.
Nike’s soccer ads “The Last Game” (3rd) and “Winner Stays” (8th) also make it into the top 10, while sponsor Castrol’s “Footkhana: Neymar Jr. v Ken Block” is 11th. Meanwhile, only one Super Bowl ad – Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” (4th) – and one commercial from this year’s Winter Olympics – P&G’s “Pick Them Back Up” (19th) – feature in the top 20.
“This year we saw a hat-trick of global sporting events. Advertisers responded by investing in powerful ads that conveyed the excitement, triumph and exhilaration of these global water cooler moments,” said Unruly’s EMEA MD Oliver Smith.
“With 300 hours of content uploaded to YouTube every minute and more than a billion video views on Facebook every day, consumers are inundated with content in their social feeds, so when a brand can create such a highly shareable video you know they’ve hit something special. Many of the most successful ads this year tied their social videos to a social cause and we saw a range of online video genres utilised by brands, from music videos and prankverts through epic love stories and playful sing-alongs.
“Activia’s collaboration with Shakira for the video ‘La La La’ rose to the top by capitalizing on World Cup fervour and the current trend for ‘trackvertising,’ where a brand and musical artist co-release a video which is both a musical track and an ad. Musical choice can play a critical part in success or failure because it offers a shortcut to emotional engagement with the viewer and eliciting an intense emotional response is the best way to generate social shares. Releasing the spot with Shakira – who this summer became the first person to reach 100 million Facebook likes – and tying the campaign to a social cause by partnering with the World Food Programme all contributed to the success of this record-breaking video.”
“Another milestone hit in 2014 with the speed of sharing nearly doubling year over year. We saw 42% of shares occur in the first three days following campaign launch – up from 25% in 2013. With such a change in pace, it’s more vital than ever that brands support their social videos with paid media in this critical launch phase or they risk losing out on potential online buzz,” added Smith.
