The YouTube Ads People Chose in April 2014

    In April, Nike and Castrol both got viewers pumped for the World Cup with spirited football spots. Nike’s “Winner Stays” racked up an impressive 49 million views within a few days of launching and featured some of football’s biggest stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimović, among others. Honey Maid also scored a Leaderboard spot with a video about love. Seizing a chance to turn lemons into lemonade, the brand took negative comments against its “This is Wholesome” ad and made them into something beautiful.
