2015 in viral videos was dominated by space and sporting events.

Coming in at No. 1 is Hyundai’s galactic expression of love.

In “A Message to Space,” we meet Stephanie, a Texan whose father spends long periods orbiting the Earth conducting experiments. Hyundai enlisted a fleet of cars using navigation systems to write a message in the desert that could be seen from space.

What can advertisers learn from Hyundai’s experience? Space sells. The spot garnered an eye-popping 55,258,972 views.
