The ad "re2pect" by Wieden & Kennedy features proud New Yorkers among celebs, from comedian and actor Billy Crystal, to film director Spike Lee, tipping their hats as a mark of respect to the retiring New York Yankees baseball star Derek Jeter.
While the Fifa 2014 World Cup might be one to forget for many, others are still basking in its glory by watching Adidas' "the final" by TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles and Bayern 3's "Germany is the World Cup winner in Brazil" ad, which are in the number two and four spots respectively.
The Always "#LikeAGirl" ad by Leo Burnett remains in the chart at number three, while a tantalising ad for the Showtime series 'Masters of Sex' by the director Tatia Pilieva makes a new entry at number five.
