So far, 2015 in viral videos has been dominated by sporting events and speed dating.

Coming in at No. 1 is the Nissan-sponsored “#withdad” spot by the Christian viral bro sensations, Dude Perfect. The “Dad Edition” for the YouTube channel was a precursor to Nissan’s 2015 Super Bowl spot and involved the Dude Perfect team performing trick stunts, such as behind-the-back basketball 3-pointers, with their fathers. It has garnered 29,894,940 views this year.

Kia follows Nissan’s spot with its promotion for the Australian Open.

Mazda's "Penn & Teller" Ford's "Speed Dating" each moved up a spot on our list. But the players remained the same, including several automaker Super Bowl commercials, including Toyota’s dad-centric “Super Bowl 2015,” BMW’s tongue-in-cheek “Newfangled Idea” and Mercedes’ “The Big Race,” a twist on a classic fable.
