The ad, shared 131,571 times this week, sets up people attending a job interview to believe an asteroid has hit earth, by replacing the window of the room with one of the brand's 84-inch "ultra reality" TVs.

The brand has previously used hidden-camera videos to promote its TV ranges. "Lift shocker", created by agency Superheroes, shows users of an elevator fooled into thinking the floor has fallen away as they are trapped inside.

Second most-shared this week, an ad from Qatar Airways, promotes its sponsorship of FC Barcelona, in an ad featuring players at the club, including Lionel Messi and Gerard Piqué.

Created by 180 Amsterdam, the video was shared 108,812 times this week.

In fourth place, Twilight star Robert Pattinson features in an ad for Dior Homme's latest fragrance.

The ad, long-awaited by Pattinson's fans following a drip-feed of campaign teasers, was shared 63,918 times across Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere. It was created by Iconoclast.

One Direction's ad for their first fragrance "our moment" was shared 27,291 times. Created by Cake, the ad was Turkey of the Week in Campaign this week.
