New Year’s Resolutions Color Quiet Week for Brands on YouTube

Inspirational fare pops during relatively quiet holiday week

Last week—with New Year's Day smack in the middle—was relatively quiet for big branded Web video efforts. Not surprisingly, the branded clips that popped were New Yearsy, New You-ish in nature: an inspirational spot from 5 Hour Energy Drink that took the top spot on the VideoWatch/VidIQ chart, followed by a 2014-is-gonna-be-big clip from Tag Heuer.

Perhaps the most interesting brand on the list appears twice, in the form of two tourism-themed spots for DowntownDubai.
