YouTube 10 year anniversary 2015
While Don Draper presumably meditated his way to one of Coca-Cola’s most iconic ads during last night’s Mad Men finale, YouTube is taking a diplomatic route to determine the most memorable spot produced by a brand in the last decade.

Continuing its 10th anniversary celebrations, the site has launched a contest, asking users to vote on their most favorite ad since YouTube’s start.

Working with the Webby Awards, YouTube relied on its top Leaderboard ads during the past ten years to select finalists, with spots from brands like Old Spice, Levi Strauss, Nike, Volvo and Dove.

The voting session is open starting today through May 28th, with the winner to be announced June 3rd.

We’ve listed the 20 finalists here, but you can vote on your favorite spot at 10YearsofYouTubeAds.com.
