YouTube isn’t just a place for the homemade videos of your last surprise birthday party. It has become a place where individuals, companies, presidential candidates, musicians, and others, are able to share a piece of themselves with others. Not only are a variety of people represented on YouTube, but different brands are represented as well. Recently Custom Communication Ltd out of the UK who specializes in social media, put together a list of some of the top brands on YouTube.

It would be one thing if these brands purposely created videos for distribution on YouTube to enhance and strengthen their brand (some do), but what has happened is that some brands are often represented on YouTube after a 3rd party created a video, and it’s not always in a positive way. To make it even “worse,” many of these videos become extremely popular. Whether these videos affect the brands in a positive or negative way, we’re not sure, but here is the list of the top 10 brands on YouTube based on the number of views each video has received.
