Each year YouTube releases its stats for most popular ads from popular companies and BuzzFyre collected the top 10 from the leaderboard just for you.


By the end of each year, YouTube releases its stats for most watched videos in a particular category. Each video that gets into YouTube’s leaderboard needs to be placed as ads, which means it should have paid views and through this it gets additional views as well.
