YouTube has released its first leadership board listing the top 10 most watched video ads in April. Leading the way with over 44 million views in less than one month is Evian: Baby&Me / The New Evian Film.

April’s list also features the first Spanish language ad with Nestle's Learning to Share, showing how brands are using YouTube to effectively reach the Hispanic market.

"The stunning success of these ads show how brand content is not just fodder for water cooler conversation, but is actively shaping what matters in culture today," says Tara Levy, director Ads Marketing, YouTube. "April also saw the first non-English language ad to make the U.S. list, demonstrating the power of YouTube to engage any audience."

In order to produce the leaderboard, YouTube used an algorithm that factors in paid views, organic views, and view rate (how much of a video people choose to watch).
