Unruly has released a new white paper that shows video sharing increased 7 percent in Q2 over the Super Bowl-dominated Q1, based mainly on three ads that you could not miss over the last three months: Dove's "Real Beauty Sketches," Evian's "Baby & Me," and Kmart's "Ship My Pants." Those three ads are now in the Top 20 shared ads of all time. The Evian and Dove ads accounted for 21.4 percent of all the sharing in Q2.

- Tech was third, helped along by this much-discussed ad by Sony that punches competitor Microsoft right in the face:
- In 4th, Retail beat Autos for the first time this year on the strength of Kmart's "Ship My Pants" and "Big Gas Savings."
- Autos finished fifth, dropping 67.3 percent and with only one video standing out, Audi's "The Challenge," the Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy ad from May:
