Campaign Viral Chart: Sony PS4 fails to topple Carrie viral
Sony's latest games console, the PlayStation 4, has entered the chart this week ahead of its expected release in November.
Sony PlayStation 4: console readies for battle at top of chart
The ad has been created by Bartle Bogle Hegarty New York. It features two friends going head to head in a number of scenarios based on video games, while singing 'Perfect Day'. The work comes ahead of the console's own anticipated battle with Microsoft's XBox One over the Christmas period.
The ad, shared 80,097 times this week, has been viewed two million times since it hit the web but did not manage to beat MGM's ‘Carrie’ viral, which was also the most-shared ad last week.
The online film, created by Thinkmodo to promote the remake of the 1976 film based on a novel by Stephen King, has this week been shared 644,984 times. It has been viewed in excess of 40 million times on YouTube.
The ad is set in a US coffee shop, where unsuspecting customers are fooled into believing an angry patron has telekinetic abilities. It uses a host of theatrical tricks, including spring-loaded bookshelves and remote controlled furniture.
At the bottom of the chart, Rovio, the producer of Angry Birds, has once again made the list with this week's tenth most-shared ad.
Created in-house, the ad for the latest instalment of the Angry Birds series promotes the brand's move into racing games with 'Angry Birds Go!' It has been shared 25,926 times this week.
Elsewhere, a new ad for Red Bull, created in-house, has been shared 42,910 times this week.
The nine-minute video mixes alternative footage of Felix Baumgartner's Stratos Jump, including point-of-view and multi-angle footage. More than eight million concurrent users on YouTube viewed the original stunt live.
GoPro, the camera producer, kept its place in the chart with two videos that have each featured in the past two charts.
