In addition to sharing the list of the most popular videos (below), YouTube noted that viewers watched around 300K hours of Super Bowl ads during the game and around 4 million hours total. And this year, of the approximately 330 million views the ads have received so far, over 60% of the views came from mobile devices for the first time.

Many of us couldn’t get enough of Beyonce’s much-awaited performance and went searching for more: We saw a 1000% spike in search interest in Beyonce after the halftime show. Meanwhile, searches for “Longest punt return” spiked 8000% in the first quarter of the game.
