‘It’s a Trap’ Drives 3.3 Million Views

By Karen Fratti 

In a week marked by ads featuring sports, videogames, and music, it was the “It’s a Trap” ad from anti-smoking outfit Truth.com that dominates the most-engaging list. Playing off the title with a trap music backing track, “It’s a Trap” racked up over 3.3 million online views and over 28,000 social actions.

Last week’s leader, “Professor of Game Day Evolution” remained strong while falling to second, with over a million views and more than 2,000 social actions in support of the NFL on Xbox fantasy integration. Football proved a lasting theme, with DirecTV debuting another in its series of “don’t be like” ads, this time with “Out of Control Beard Andrew Luck” at fifth.

Meanwhile, the “Handle the Mission” ad for the highly anticipated videogame “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” debuted in 8th, while the Apple Music TV spot “Discovery” held on for another week in 10th.
