H&M and David Beckham Sneak onto Viral Chart
On this week's Viral Video Chart, H&M steals the spotlight from big name Super Bowl advertisers to grab the number nine spot with 7.1 million views. Directed by Guy Ritchie and starring David Beckham, the campaign follows Beckham as he runs through the elite back yards of Beverly Hills in nothing but a pair of snug H&M briefs.
Becks recently revealed that a body double was used for some stunts, but that didn't keep fans from watching the ad, which has already inspired more than 20 related clips in just a few short days, making David Beckham Bodywear the only non-Super Bowl spot to make the ranks this week.
Elsewhere on the chart, Samsung grabs the number one spot with its hilarious big game ad starring Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd, while Ram's emotional Farmer ad sneaks up to the runner-up spot with 15.7 million views. Other Super Bowl advertisers to make the chart include GoDaddy.com, Budweiser, Doritos and others.
