The LAD Bible takes No. 1 spot from UNILAD as March’s most popular video creator
After more than eight months leading the pack, UNILAD was knocked to the No. 4 position, behind The LAD Bible, Viral Thread and NTD Television.
For eight of the last nine months, UNILAD has ranked at the top of Tubular’s list of the most watched video creators, followed by The LAD Bible at No. 2. The only exception was last December, when the two switched places and UNILAD dropped to second place.
Last month, The LAD Bible once again overtook UNILAD to claim the top spot, but this time, instead of falling to No. 2, UNILAD dropped all the way to the No. 4 position, behind The LAD Bible, Viral Thread and NTD Television.
To take the lead, The LAD Bible generated 3.2 billion video views, 2 million more views than it got in February. More impressive was Viral Thread and NTD Television’s jump above UNILAD. Viral Thread earned 9 million more views in March than it did in February, and NTD Television (a Chinese media company based in NYC) earned 4 million more.
UNILAD’s March numbers were up only slightly over their February views: 3.15 billion compared to 3.10 billion.
The remainder of the list had few changes beyond 5 Minute Crafts and T-Series breaking into the top 10, in place of World Star Hip Hop, which ranked No. 8 in February, and the NBA, which ranked No. 10.
All creators in the top 10 list for March surpassed the billion-view mark.

Samsung, Uber, GreenYatra, LG USA and Hasbro all found their way into the top 10 after not ranking in February. After only four brands seeing more than 100 million views in February, all 10 of the brands to rank in March generated more than 100 million views.
