Top 5 viral ads of the month

When brands rope in celebrities that strongly match the sensibilities of the brand, they add something they never had before: interactivity and virality. Packing in endearing moments and interesting messages while riding on the celebrity’s fame just gives the ad more edge over the reams of ads that storm the digital every day. These 5 viral ads of the month used the right celebrity with the right tactic just in right time and took the Internet by storm.

Manyavar


YouTube impressions: 4 million views

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma give a whole new meaning to wedding vows in their commercial for ethnic clothing brand, Manyavar. The ad shows them attending a wedding, and exchanging their own vows, albeit, unconventional ones. While watching the bride and groom participate in their wedding rituals, Kohli and Sharma play a guessing game – each trying to guess what vows the to-be-weds are silently exchanging. What follows is a cheeky back-and-forth between the celebrity couple which is rather endearing! No wonder the Internet went on a mushy meltdown after watching it.
