This weeks top video for BMW in Brand20 index surprised us, its a beautiful video of the Kinetic Sculpture at the BMW museum and undoubtedly getting a lot of views for BMW this week. The interesting part is that, Honda is advertising along side and in the video. A few second into the video you notice an ad of the Honda Pilot, and on the right side a contest promotion by Honda.

There are thousands of videos uploaded every day for autos on YouTube, Dailymotion, MySpace and other platforms. It is imperative for brands to engage this new medium and claim these videos before other companies or competitors can capitalize on a viral video for your brand. This is a classic example, Honda Ad is showing up on all the top videos for autos, and with a significant surge of people looking for auto videos online, this is a great way to engage that audience.
