Pokémon Leading All Super Bowl Ad Videos With 11.4 Million Online Views
Pokémon's extended version of its Super Bowl commercial tops all videos in views and social mentions, while Heinz is trending this week.
Pokémon has earned the most online video views (and social mentions, too) of all the brands that have pre-released teasers or actual Super Bowl ads for this Sunday’s game. But Heinz, with its popular “Wiener Stampede” commercial, is trending hot this week.
Through February 2, the most popular overall online video is Pokémon’s extended version of its 20th anniversary commercial. iSpot.tv says that video has been seen more than 11.4 million times and has earned more than 305,000 social mentions — tops in both categories among Super Bowl advertisers.
The Pokémon teaser is a longer version — 1:11 to be exact — of the 30-second commercial that the company plans to air on Sunday. That video was released online more than a week ago, giving it a head start over the more recently released Super Bowl videos.
The hot video this week, iSpot.tv says, comes from Heinz. Just in the past three days, its “Wiener Stampede” extended video has earned more than two million views and 85,000+ social mentions. That accounts for more than 25 percent “digital share of voice” among all pre-released videos over the past three days.
Overall, iSpot.tv says these pre-released Super Bowl ads and teasers have been viewed online almost 150 million times, with Facebook and YouTube splitting views almost evenly. See our story, Facebook Surpasses YouTube, Barely, In Super Bowl Commercial Video Views [Report], for more on that.
