Super Bowl ads that YouTube liked the most

Yesterday, we looked at USA Today‘s take on the most-liked ads of the Super Bowl, which left us more than a little skeptical. Today, we bring you data from the world’s biggest focus group: YouTube. About 24 hours after the game ended, we tallied up the “Likes” and “Dislikes” earned by every Super Bowl spot on YouTube, then created a “YouTube Index” to rank the ads. The index shows the number of “Likes” for every “Dislike,” capturing the overall sentiment toward each ad, regardless of its popularity (i.e., number of views). This helped even the playing field with spots like Volkswagen’s “The Force,” which racked up more than 10 million views before the game even started. So what did we find? Sweet, sweet validation. See the entire list after the jump.
