Canada’s Hottest Ads: A very foodie November

...with a light dusting of holiday cheer

YouTubeLeaderboardLogo-300x185 There are only three holiday ads on November’s YouTube Canada Ads Leaderboard, all from the U.K., as it turns out. Otherwise the monthly list of the most-watched YouTube ads in Canada is filled with foods of all flavours (including two ads for McDonald’s).

Note: This ranking indicates which ads were most watched within Canada. To be included on this ranking, a video must be listed as an ad on YouTube. While Google does not make Canadian viewer statistics available, it determines this ranking with a process that accounts for paid and organic views and how much of a given video viewers watch.
