YouTube recently released its list of most-watched TV ads for 2010. Many of them made their debut at the Super Bowl XLIV and have re-sparked or launched new careers for their stars. As we are only weeks away from the next NFL Super Bowl (XLV), which of the 2011 commercials will go on to live in infamy?

The list of commercials below was based on number of views, and though none has topped YouTube’s all-time winner, Evian’s Roller Babies (2009), which has received nearly 45 million views in both the U.S. and abroad, the 2010 winner did reach 24.2 million views to-date and is still going strong (no pun intended!). And that winner is Isaiah Mustafa’s portrayal of the “Old Spice guy” in Proctor & Gamble’s “Old Spice | The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” (see above).

The rest of the contenders are:
