Adidas, an official partner of FIfa's World Cup 2014 in Brazil, created the ad by TBWA LA last month. The ad featuring Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez jumps to the second spot for the second time after being shared more than 190,000 times on Facebook and 20,000 times on Twitter, in the run up the World Cup, which began last night.

The remaining nine ads in the chart remain much unchanged, with Activa's Shakira music video ad '"lalala'" by Jaume De Laiguana in support of The UN's World Food Partnership continuing to the lead for the third consecutive week. 

The chart, compiled by Unruly, also includes Google's film, "a first drive" that shows Google staff testing prototypes of its machine-driven car, which has no steering wheel, and landed in the chart last week.
