Top 20 Chinese New Year video commercials in Malaysia 2021

Which are Malaysia's most popular CNY video ads on YouTube in 2021 amidst the pandemic? Read on to find out how we rank them by "YT Score".

This year, we are going to continue our tradition of compiling the popular CNY video ads in Malaysia, since the 2019 and 2020 editions.

Similar to last year, we will apply the "YT Score" metrics by considering the total video views, engagements and like ratio (likes vs dislikes).

  • [message]
    • To recap, here's how YT Score is being calculated:
      • YT Score = (Likes ÷ Total Engagements - 0.7) ÷ SQRT ( POWER (0.7,2) ÷ Total Engagements )

Watch time aside, we think this is a good method to rank videos based on their popularity, instead of ranking videos by the most views (can be bought with ads), or purely by the like ratio (some videos have low engagements so it's not fair to compare with those with much higher engagements).

If you check out the top-ranked videos here, you can clearly see that good quality video commercials are ranked high by YT Score.

In recent years, brands like TNB, RHB and Watsons are consistently producing high-quality, memorable and creative video commercials. This year is no exception too.

In the midst of the pandemic with filming challenges, brands like Petronas, Sunway, Gamuda Land have opted for full or hybrid animations.

It is not a surprise that AirAsia hasn't even launched any CNY video, while Malaysia Airlines has produced a simple video here without much media investment.

Perodua too has opted for low-key but creatively done ASMR-inspired video. Celcom on another hand has also toned-down this year with a simple, VO-led video.

Well received or not, these are good examples of brands getting creative around the current market situations and possibly lesser production budget.

Similar to the past editions, these are the requirements on how the commercials are shortlisted:

  • The video must be intended for Malaysia's market (even Singapore is excluded).
  • The video must be produced by or for the brand.
  • The video must have at least 100K views on YouTube.
  • Other media platforms like Facebook are not considered here.
  • Promotional videos by media companies are not included here.

Before we proceed with the top 20 CNY video by YT Score, let's take a look at who are the winners (and losers) of the following categories:

  • Most video views: Watsons CNY #HappyBeautifulYear 2021 (11,536,335 views)
