Wren Studio: first Kiss viral tops chart
The three-minute video, created and directed by Tatia Plleva, was shared 952,802 times this week and does not include the name of the brand at all. The ad has come under fire for reportedly using actors and models as the participants rather than members of the public.
In second position, an ad from Save the Children created by Don't Panic was shared 788,843 times.
The ad, which has been widely well-received online, features a British schoolgirl going about her daily routine in second-long sequences as the country is plunged into war, to raise awareness of the Syrian crisis.
Meanwhile, a call to ban the word "bossy" to inspire female leaders of the future, starring Facebook's chief operating officer, Cheryl Sandberg, the former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the pop star Beyonce, has been shared just over 64,000 times.
The film, which features shots of famous and inspiring women talking about the negative reactions from some to their rise to fame and power, was created by BBDO New York and took fifth place this week.
Samsung is the only brand to feature four times in this week's chart. Official introductions to its latest Galaxy S5 smartphone and Gear 2 smart watches, created in-house, have been shared a combined 439,446 times this week.
