Viral Video Chart: Stealing kids' Halloween treats, hobbits going on holiday and election videos top the chartViral Video Chart: Stealing kids' Halloween treats, hobbits going on

It should come as no surprise that videos relating to the Presidential election feature in this week’s two charts: with Will Ferrell firmly in the Obama camp, while The Simpson’s Mr. Burns promotes Romney.

The user generated chart was topped by the Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney. Epic Rap Battles Of History Season 2, which clocked up over 30 million views.

However, the top video of the brand chart is a challenge from Jimmy Kimmel, where parents told their kids that they had eaten their Halloween treats (the kids weren’t very pleased). The video has gained 11,997,304 views…and this was only one of three Jimmy Kimmel videos which made the top ten this week!

The charts are compiled with the Viral Ad Network and are based on the number of shares each video has received on social media over the last seven days.
