The Growing Face of Advertising on YouTube 2012

As YouTube’s global audience hit 800 million users in 2012, YouTube’s content inventory has kept pace and has grown to 160 channels of original programming. Google looked at audience reach and brand metrics across 448 campaigns in 6 countries (U.K., U.S., France, Germany, Japan, and Italy) over the last 12 months. This infographic captures the efficiency and effectiveness of advertising on YouTube in 2012.

We are never more creative than when we are kids. The world is new, and we explore it all, wide-eyed and inquisitive. Our favorite question is ‘Why?

Technology unlocks this childlike wonder in all of us. Every day – every second – there is something new online. This lets us grown-ups be both endlessly curious and profoundly creative. We can ask ‘why?’ and get answers from everywhere – search engines, wikis, social media. We can ask ‘why not?’ and find new, tech-driven solutions to old, analog problems.

Project Re: Brief

What happens when legendary admen of yesteryear are given cutting-edge digital tools to revisit their greatest moments? If Google’s Re: Brief is anything to go by, you unlock the creative potential of new media advertising.

Ask anyone to name the greatest television commercial of all time and a list of contenders will likely spill out. Ask the same question about, say, banner ads and chances are you’ll meet blank stares. So far, the secret to making a classic internet commercial has remained locked away. To get at it, Google took an approach straight out of a heist film, persuading a team of veteran safe crackers to come out of retirement for one last job. These legendary advertisers would work alongside a team of technical whizz-kids and creatives in an experiment to turn four iconic campaigns into cutting-edge online ads using the kind of technology they couldn’t have dreamed of as younger men.

Bob Pasqualina was sanding an antique wooden skiff in his garage in Ashley Falls, MA, when his old partner Howie Cohen called. The pair created the CLIO Hall of Fame television spot ‘I can’t believe I ate the whole thing’ for Alka-Seltzer, and hadn’t worked together for 30 years. Cohen explained that Google wanted them to re-imagine their 1972 ad. “I was far, far removed from the workings of Google and even the computer,” Pasqualina says. But the ad was the biggest moment of their careers and he couldn’t pass up returning to it. He agreed on the spot.

Three other legends from advertising’s golden age were also on board: Amil Gargano, the man who launched Volvo in the US with the 1963 ad ‘Drive it like you hate it;’ Paula Green, who invented the ‘challenger brand’ concept with Avis’ ‘We Try Harder;’ and Harvey Gabor, who dreamed up Coca-Cola’s iconic 1971 television commercial ‘Hilltop,’ in which a global chorus sang, “I’d like to buy the world a Coke.”

They had signed up for Project Re: Brief. “Our purpose was to take a medium that is ignored more than it is loved, and inspire a new generation of creative people to use it to make exceptionally engaging work,” says Aman Govil, the Product Marketing Manager who led the experiment. “The message that we wanted to get across is that to create great online advertising, you first need to create great advertising.” The Google team could make these new ads shimmer with technical know-how, but the legends would ensure they had heart.

“If we can shift the way the industry approaches digital advertising, we can come up with work that people will love, remember and share 50 years from now… This is the third dimension of advertising; it’s immersive and emotive.”
