The 10 Most Watched Ads on YouTube in April

Women-targeted ads had a strong month on YouTube in March, taking four of the top five spots on Adweek and Google's YouTube Ads Leaderboard list of most-watched spots. (The lead-up to Mother's Day had something to do with that.) But none of them came close to the No. 1 spot—a juggernaut from Hyundai that literally went into the stratosphere.

Nike, Foot Locker and Gillette also make this month's list, as does Friskies for a third time with its latest BuzzFeed collaboration.

See all 10 spots below.

Note: To be eligible for Adweek and Google's YouTube Ads Leaderboard, videos must be marked as ads on YouTube (i.e., they get some paid views) but must also earn significant organic views.
