A not fully-awake man jumps into his new Mini, only to find that he's in the back seat. A man at an outdoor cafe stares at a Mini, puzzled, as two women enter, and two men step out almost simultaneously. Miraculous transformation? No, just a reminder that the traditional Mini now has 5 doors. The campaign, "Now With 5 Doors," comes in at No. 2 with 2,948,590 views.
Also new this week are three spots from Volkswagen Group extolling the pure power of German engineering.
In "Welcome Back," from Audi, the brand celebrates the return of Porsche -- yes Porsche -- to the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in France. The spot is ranked fifth by Visible Measures with 734,281 views.
In "Turbocharge the Everyday," Volkswagen teams up with the sports camera maker GoPro for an interactive video where viewers can watch a Golf GTI race around town from dozens of different angles. The spot, created by Deutsch Los Angeles, promotes a deal where anyone who buys a GTI by the end of June will receive a free GoPro. The spot is ranked eighth by Visible Measures with 335,740 views.
In Audi's "Motorsport Challenge," the brand teams up with Felix Baumgartner, the Austrian daredevil who in 2012 completed the highest ever free fall from just over 23 miles high. With Audi, Baumgartner will be racing the Nürburgring 24 Hour race. The spot, which simulates Baumgartner's jump transforming into him racing, is ranked ninth by Visible Measures with 300,418 views.
