Top 20 Chinese New Year video commercials in Malaysia 2019

Which are the most likable CNY video ads on YouTube in Malaysia? Find out how we rank them by "Like Ratio".

Internet platforms like YouTube have enabled more brands to produce and distribute Chinese New Year video commercials, advertisers are no longer limited by the higher barrier of entry to TV commercials.

Every year, we are seeing more and more brands producing festive video ads, from promo-driven, music video style, family's value to story-telling.

Let's find out which brands have the most well-received CNY video commercials this year.

Top 20 CNY video commercials in Malaysia 2019

Here are the criteria how the videos are shortlisted:
  • The video must be intended for Malaysia market (even Singapore is excluded).
  • The video must have at least 100K views on YouTube.
  • Other media platforms like Facebook are not considered here.
We have seen some decent videos with less than 100K views, such a waste! Imagine if a brand invested tens of thousands (or more) on video production, why not allocate at least RM5K on YouTube to distribute the video's reach?

  • [message]
    • ##question-circle## How to get 100K views on YouTube?
      • CPV (Cost per View) on YouTube is RM0.05 on average, hence to achieve 100K views RM5K media budget is required, 1M views with RM50K budget and so on. CPV ranges from RM0.01 to RM0.10 or more depending on various factors.
Minimum 100K views it is, but shall we measure how well-received the videos are by the number of views? Not quite as the views can be bought by advertising, let's rank them by Like Ratio instead.

What is Like Ratio? This is simply the ratio of likes vs dislikes on a particular YouTube video. For example, if there are 90 likes and 10 dislikes on a video, the Like Ratio is 90% in this case.

As a guideline, the video commercial is considered well-received if the Like Ratio is more than 80%, not so good if it is below 70%. The more views the video has, the more relevant the Like Ratio is.

So, let's bring on the most popular CNY video commercials in Malaysia by 3 categories below, ranked by Like Ratio:
  • Top 10 CNY Video Ads (2M views or more on YouTube)
  • Top 5 CNY Video Ads (less than 2M views on YouTube)
  • Top 5 CNY Short Video Ads (30 seconds or less)
All the statistics of YT Views and Like Ratio is updated on 13 February 2019 (CNY day 9) so the numbers could be different by the time you read this.

Which is your favourite CNY video commercial?

As you know by now, Like Ratio is a key indicator of whether the video is liked (or disliked) by the mass audience.

It is also one of the important factors how YouTube ranks and recommends your videos organically.

Like Ratio or not, our personal favourite is TNB CNY 2019 - The ONG-est Hours, for its all-round presentations with great talents, cool videography at the same time covering most of the CNY essences.

What about you, which one is your favourite? Do leave a comment below if we missed out any great local CNY video commercials on YouTube.
