And the winner is… #TheYouTubeAd of 2015

In partnership with The Webby Awards, we selected 25 of the most iconic ads on YouTube in 2015 based on this year’s YouTube Ads Leaderboard. And for the first week of December, we asked you to vote on your favorites across five fun categories — and vote, you did!
