There are several new brands in the October’s U.S. ads leaderboard, the most watched ads on YouTube for the last month. Crest and DieHard ran with the Halloween theme which earned them a substantial amount of views and PS4 and XBox One went into battle once again, with PS4 narrowly winning the view count war a month ahead of its release date. Virgin America took a boring subject and turned it into an all singing all dancing extravaganza which won them a place on the chart with 4.5 million views in less than 6 days. There was one appearance by Ron Burgundy, but we can expect more in December and November as the other 61 videos in the Dodge Durango campaign are released. See the full list of ads that people (in the U.S.) chose to watch last month below.
