YouTube’s Top Ads of 2011

YouTube LogoOver the last few years, advertisers have learned a few things on how to truly engage customers. They’ve started providing consumers the opportunity to become an active participant in campaigns by creating sharable content. Ads are earning their way onto screens via votes on YouTube, comments, sharing and liking on various social media platforms and users are jumping on the bandwagon as well by creating spoofs and video responses; making campaigns even more successful.

This year, YouTube has given ten spots to the top advertisements of 2011. Only two of the ten were shown during the Super Bowl and those were parts of larger campaigns that spread across the web. The majority never even appeared on television! Check out what ten have made the cut here:
