Vine was a very popular platform with brands last week and many of them used the site to show off some fantastically creative Super Bowl content. Priceline parodied SodaStream and ESPN watched the Seahawks and Broncos mascots slug it out.
Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” commercial not only won the hearts and minds of the viewers of Super Bowl 2014, it also generated the most shares across the internet – an incredible 1.31 million according to Unruly. That makes it the 6th most shared Super Bowl ad of all time.

Our fun videos of the week include another NFL bad lip reading, a trip back in time from Delta Airlines, a new trailer for the LEGO movie, a Larry David insult compilation and a very patriotic version of the National Anthem – from the Peanuts gang.
