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. Trailing behind are 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.
Rounding off our list is a spot for the Ford Mustang, in which the carmaker sets up unsuspecting men on blind dates with a professional stunt driver in a new Mustang.
