The 10 Most-Viral Fortune 500 Brands of 2011

Big video numbers from America's biggest companies

You can slice and dice online video-viewing data in about a billion different ways. Here's another interesting one—the 10 brands from the Fortune 500 that had the most online video views in 2011, courtesy of Visible Measures. Two of the companies, GE and Ford, are in the top 10 of the Fortune 500 itself—the epitome of sheer size and viral marketing reach combined. Google, which is No. 92 on the Fortune 500, tops this list—largely thanks to its celebrity-studded Chrome campaign, featuring Lady Gaga among others. The player hitting the most above its weight here is Corning, which is No. 350 on the Fortune 500 but had the 10th-most online video views this year, almost all of them for its famed "A Day Made of Glass" video—a real one-hit wonder. (A methodology note from Visible Measures: "The views refer to what we call the True Reach of a brand. We track the original videos that the brands and agencies upload for campaigns as well as copies and derivative content that audiences post across the Web.") See all 10 after the jump.
