#100DaysToRio: Watch The Most Shared Olympics Ads Of All Time

It’s officially 100 days to go to the Rio Olympics – and we could not be more excited here at Unruly. So as advertisers approach the final sprint, we thought we’d look back at the top 10 most shared Olympics ads of all time.

Over the years, the bar has been set pretty high, but this is the Olympics. Brands will be going all out to be Faster, Stronger and Higher this summer, so we are fully expecting some new ads to be joining the list over the next few months.

One definite contender is this new P&G ad, released today to coincide with the #100DaysToRio milestone. It’s a great ad, and the brand certainly comes with a rich Olympic heritage, with gold, silver and bronze spots in our top 10 all taken up by the CPG brand.

But which other brands also made in onto the top 10 podium?

Let’s find out!
