Clash Royale’s ‘Epic Comeback’ was #1 YouTube ad in December, App…

Supercell’s “Clash Royale” video game had the most-watched ad on YouTube last month, with its “Epic Comeback” spot generating 16 million views. However, Apple was the most popular brand overall, with three ads in YouTube’s December ad leaderboard.

The iPhone X helped push Apple well ahead of the other brands, with its “Animoji Yourself” spot receiving 10.1 million views, the “Introducing Face ID” ad with 5.1 million views, and “Sway,” the brand’s holiday ad, which also featured the iPhone X, earning 4.9 million views.

The total view count for all three Apple ads amounted to 30.1 million, more than a third of the 87.8 million combined views generated by the top 10 ads.

Even though it was December, very few of the ads were holiday campaign spots. Apple’s “Sway” and the Elf on the Shelf music video, “Scout Elves Don’t Rest,” which ranked No. 10, were holiday-themed, but those were the only holiday-specific spots. (Google’s “Year in Search” could be considered holiday-themed, inasmuch as it could even be considered an “ad” since it’s an annual video Google creates to highlight the most popular search terms of the year.)

There appears to be an almost even split for views for the top half of the list compared to the bottom half — the top four ads earned between 10 million and 16 million views, while the ads that ranked sixth through 10th each earned 4 to 5 million views.
