Budweiser & Esurance Take Top Spots In Top 10 Most Popular 2014 Super Bowl Ads Online

Budweiser Puppy Love screen captureIt looks like the Seattle Seahawks weren’t the only big winners last night. According to video analytics firm iSpot.tv, Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” was the No. 1 most popular Super Bowl ad online, with two more of the brand’s ads making it into iSpot.tv’s top ten list.

Ranking Super Bowl ads based on online views and digital activity, iSpot.tv claims Budweiser held the No. 1, 2 and 3 spots during the game. But post-game, Esurance’s ad starring John Krasinski has since taken over second place.

Airing immediately following the Super Bowl, the Esurance ad asked viewers to tweet the hashtag #EsuranceSave30 for a chance at $1.5 million. While the ad hasn’t generated nearly the number of online views as other Super Bowl ads, iSpot’s data shows the ad has resulted in more than 400,000 social actions.

Even with Esurance’s ad continuing to gain online popularity, iSpot reports Budweiser is the overall Super Bowl brand leader this year, with its ads generating a total of nearly 68 million views and 1.3 million social actions.

“Budweiser, which accounted for 10 of 52 creatives as of Sunday morning, dominated by every measure leading in and even on game day,” says iSpot.
