American movie trailers dominate list of Australia’s top YouTube viral ads

Google has released a list of the most popular Australian YouTube ads of the year so far.

The top ten is led by Fitzy & Wippa’s parody of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe – but the list is dominated by American movie trailers.

Sam Kekovich’s Barbie Girl pastiche for Meat & Livestock Australia is the only other Aussie ad on the list.

  2. This is a better ‘call me maybe’ viral video… got a few more views than Witzy and Fippa too.

  4. Yay, Ironsky. Invested €50 in it, so glad it snuck into the top ten.

    Wasn’t the greatest film ever made, but very refreshing slant on global politics (ie the Americans are complete and utter bastards). More of it.

  8. @Llyod, yep, cant argue that ‘call me maybe’ viral video was better to look at, but have to say that Fitzy and Wippa were better lip syncing. Even when they’re lips werent moving.

    Mind you, why the hell was I paying attention to how well those girls were lip syncing?
