The ad has been shared nearly 350,000 times online in the past seven days. The cinematic ad somewhat emulates Luhrmann’s film The Great Gatsby.

It features Bündchen surfing, before heading inside her Hampton home to find her husband has left her a note, which contains the words, "the one that I want". She later reads the note while modelling, before rushing out of the studio to find her husband in a club.

The ad is set to a slow version of the song You’re The One That I Want from the film Greece, performed by Lo-Fang.

A controversial ad for FCKH8.com showing young girls swearing to highlight feminism has reached number two this week, after being shared more than 268,000 times.

Meanwhile, celebrity ads are also proving popular. A Coca-Cola spot by Droga5 New York, featuring singer Taylor Swift sitting with kittens, has charted at number three after being shared more than 120,000 times, while the Haig Club ad by Adam&Eve/DDB with David Beckham makes it in at number six.
