Super Bowl: 4M Social shares, 28.4M tweets, 265M Facebook interactions and more


For the third year in a row, Budweiser had the most shared ad across social channels during the Super Bowl. According to Unruly’s Viral Video Chart, entertainment brands and movie studios dominated the big game’s top ten shared spots. Overall, the commercials generated a total 4,485,297 shares online, almost twice as many shares (82.3 percent) as Super Bowl 2014 received during the same period last year (2,460,075 total shares). “Last year, half of the top ten ads were auto brands [and] CPG brands; this year, only Budweiser and Snickers made the cut…[and] there are no auto brands,” Unruly Co-Founder and COO Sarah Wood said. “Advertisers wanting to use the Super Bowl to drive digital buzz around their campaigns are up against stiff competition now, competing with Hollywood for share of voice.”

The Top 10 Most Shared Super bowl Ads 2015 include:

1. Budweiser: “Lost Dog” – 2,168,530 shares
2. Universal: Fast And Furious 7 – 640,038 shares
