Brazil is one of the fastest growing markets for online video and with the World Cup only 7 months away, and the Olympics coming to the country in 2016, brands have an unprecedented chance to extend their reach. With a Brazilian audience eager to view and share great video content, and two massive sporting events that will capture the world's attention, the next couple of years could see the most perfect storm of marketing opportunities ever. As the "social media capital of the universe", Brazil is YouTube's and Facebook's second-largest market and digital ad spending is expected to rise to $3.06 billion in 2014 and $4.01 billion in 2016, more than double the ad spend of 2012. We'll be keeping a close eye on the country in the run up to FIFA 2014 and the Olympics of 2016 and we start by bringing you the top ads shared on YouTube for October 2013.
