Shakira: tops the World Cup poll with 'la la la' for Activia

Shakira's "la la la" football song with Activia has been the most-shared 2014 World Cup ad in the run-up to the tournament, while Samsung has three ads in the top ten.

The Colombian singer’s song, a partnership with Activia and the UN World Food Programme, has been shared 1,936,218 times according to Unruly, which ranks ads based on shares reported by third parties such as Twitter, Facebook and blogs.

It was also the most-shared ad of any kind last week, also according to Unruly.

Samsung takes three of the top spots, with ads in its series of "Galaxy11" films, which feature footballers and promote its latest Galaxy phone.

Adidas, Nike and Coca-Cola also appear in the chart with ads that play off the excitement for the football competition in Brazil.
