Apple Lands 3 Spots Among Top YouTube Brand Videos

But tech giant can't top GoPro

Following what some saw as a ho-hum press event last week during which Apple announced the latest versions of the iPad and its line of laptops, the tech company proved it can still inspire consumers—at least according to the latest VideoWatch/VidIQ ranking of branded videos on YouTube. Among the spots trending last week were this cool clip featuring narration from Walter White.

But overall, while Apple had a great week, it couldn't touch GoPro. Following up on its tearjerker fireman-saving-cat-clip, the camera company generated 7.81 million views last week and nearly 11,000 shares with this wild clip of mountain biker Kelly McGarry jumping a 72 foot canyon.
