Jaguar surged onto our viral video list this week at the No. 2 position with 1,639,175 views for a spot that infers that Jaguar gobbles up the competition, which happens to be Mercedes in the form of a chicken.
Adding insult to injury, that's a chicken that Mercedes used so successfully to illustrate the smooth body control of its vehicles; Magic Body Control they call it. That video also is on our viral video chart, at No. 4 with 930,210 views.
Also new this week is a holiday-themed item from Honda, "Santa's New Sleigh," with debuts at No. 8 with 500,003 views, and Jerry Seinfeld's spots for Acura that air during his Web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which arrives at No. 9 with 461,579 views.
Topping our list is Wieden + Kennedy Portland's Ron Burgundy campaign for the Dodge Durango with 2,990,561 views.
