Rooted in the power of storytelling

The YouTube Ads Leaderboard 2020 consists of the monthly top ads determined by factors such as watch time, organic views, and audience retention. According to YouTube, these 12 ads showed brand resilience and relevance, the power of storytelling, and the new realities of life as a result of the pandemic. 

For YouTube Ads Leaderboard 2020, we saw the narratives of new realities and silver linings told through the video platform. We witnessed the power of storytelling to help people get by, celebrate real heroes, and focus on what matters most in life. Effective YouTube ads not only exceed metrics but convey messages around humanity’s potential to inspire others and make a meaningful impact, said Gabby Roxas, Marketing Head of Google Philippines.

Below is the top ad for each month last year:

1. January: Ang Chibok ng Puso ni Piolo (Andok's) - This ad dominated the month of January, showcasing epic storytelling about how a favorite food from childhood can reignite love, with Pinoy celebrity Piolo Pascual capturing the hearts’ of the viewers.

3. March: Lazada 8th Birthday Sale (Lazada Philippines) - The funny Lazada 8th Birthday Sale ad won the hearts of many Filipino viewers in March, thanks to the influence of “your girl” Mimiyuuuh.

4. April: The All-New Suzuki S-Presso (Suzuki Philippines) - Interestingly, in April where Filipino viewers have been in lockdown for almost a month, this car ad emerged as the winner which might have indicated Filipinos’ wishful desire to be able to go out and freely hit the road again. Agree?

5. May: Alagang Ramdam ng Bawat Pilipino (Lactum 3 & 6) - COVID-19 might have changed a lot of things, but not celebrating the unconditional love of Filipino moms. Lactums’ Mother’s Day campaign is the top ad for May 2020.
