Editor's note: An earlier version of this table had incorrect "last week" rankings for several entries. This has been corrected.
Hyundai Motor Co. has gone global -- in the truest sense of the word. The Korean automaker has put together an astonishing 15 minute music video comprised of crowd-sourced lyrics and video from 17 different countries. The spot, "brilliant is," discards the regional approach to advertising instead gunning for one unifying message broadcast across the Earth. The video is subtitled in English and has video ranging from bedroom webcam footage to childhood home videos. Hyundai tags all the video's contributors as "brilliant," but they should be extending that to viewers that can sit through the entire video without clicking away. The spot enters our weekly roundup of hottest auto-brand viral videos at No. 3 with 1,335,070 views.
Also new this week is Toyota's "Toyotathon," ranked sixth by Visible Measures with 493,951 views, and Jeep's "Built Free," ranked ninth with 438,516 views.
