YouTube names top 10 brand videos of 2010


Google has crunched the numbers and come up with its list of the top 10 brand videos of the year. It's no surprise that the Old Spice guy seduced his way to the top, with "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" garnering 24.2 million global views. (His number would be even higher if YouTube counted all the views his reply videos got.) Wieden + Kennedy took the top two slots, taking home silver for Nike's epic "Write the Future" spot, viewed 21.2 million times (but which, weirdly, appears to be private and non-viewable on YouTube now). The bronze is a little more obscure—DC Shoes' "Ken Block's Gymkhana THREE, Part 2," which earned 19 million views. After the jump, check out the full top 10.
