“The list is filled with ads from multiple sectors and multiple countries, from brands large and small,” Unruly’s Vice President of Marketing and insight, US Devra Prywes told Cynopsis. “Advertisers this year turned away from hilarity – which was popular in 2013 – to use a number of different emotions including exhilaration, joy, happiness and even sadness. These brands can benefit from the social buzz and increased purchase intent that goes along with top-shared honor.”

From the list, Unruly created the top digital trends from the year:
1. Brands committed to programmatic video: More than half of publishers sold video ad inventory programmatically this year (Adap.tv).
2. Trackvertising boomed: Think Activia’s World Cup collaboration with Shakira, and the rise of a music video co-released with a brand.
3. Fempowerment advertising took center stage: Always’ #LikeAGirl and Under Armour’s “I Will What I Want” ads.
