LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Commercials aired during Super Bowl XLIII have been watched online more than 28 million times since Sunday and one ad banned from broadcast made the top 20 most popular list, according to a viral video tracking report issued today by BayTSP.

As of 10 a.m. Pacific time Wednesday, the trailer for “Transformers 2” held the top spot with more than 3.6 million views and 721 copies uploaded to video hosting sites. The trailer for “G.I. Joe” moved up to second place with more than 1.6 million views and 279 copies posted online.

“Based on viewership rates, it appears that people waited until they got to work on Monday to start watching a lot of the commercials,” said Mark Ishikawa, CEO of BayTSP. “Our analysis shows that the Super Bowl remains a reliable outlet for getting a TV commercial to go viral.”

BayTSP is tracking propagation and viewership of more than 50 commercials aired during Super Bowl XLIII across more than a dozen video hosting sites, including YouTube, Daily Motion and YouKu. Viral video tracking and measurement is part of BayTSP’s larger business intelligence service used by the entertainment industry, advertisers and marketers to analyze consumer interest in feature films and television shows.

Well, it looks like there is a lot of anticipation for TF2. I have a feeling this movie will break a lot of records, again, for the movie and DVD releases.

I don't doubt it will be good, but I don't quite think it'll break alot of records.

The first movie broke records, and sequels generally gross more than originals.
