Campaign Viral Chart: Google's self-driving car video takes fifth position
Google has entered the viral video chart with a video demonstrating its driverless car, which is the fifth most-shard ad this week with 114,013 shares in the past seven days.
Google: 'first drive' campaign
The film is called "a first drive" and features Google staff testing prototypes of its machine-driven car, which has no steering wheel, on some of the public for the first time.
It shows volunteers, including two blind people called Thida and Steve, experiencing a ride in the car, and Google's engineers explaining the concept.
Colombian singer Shakira remains in the top position on the viral chart, as she was last week, with the Activia World Cup song "la la la" in support of the UN's World Food Partnership. The ad was shared 2,085,403 times in the last week, according to video measurement specialist Unruly.
Meanwhile, Adidas, which was the second most-shared ad last week, has dropped to third position with "the dream: all in or nothing", its World Cup-themed ad featuring footballers.
In second place is another football-related ad: one of the films from Samsung's series of ads for its Galaxy 11 phone model.
