Campaign Viral Chart: Grand Theft Auto on top again
By Ben Hall, campaignlive.co.uk, Friday, 19 July 2013 08:44AM
Grand Theft Auto tops the Campaign Viral Chart as the most-shared ad for a second week in a row with a video that offers gamers a first look at the fifth game in the series.
The ad for Rockstar games, created in-house, has been shared 121,609 times - more than double its closest rival, Honda's "hands" by Wieden & Kennedy.
O2's "be more dog" has entered the chart for the first time since the campaign launched earlier this month.
The ad, created by VCCP, has been shared just shy of 112,000 times and has been followed up by a "be more dog" app.
A film by The Guardian for prisoner rights charity, Reprieve, was this week shared 23,355 times and sits in sixth place in the chart, down from three last week.
The harrowing four-minute video, starring Mos Def, features the rapper undergoing the standard procedure to force feed prisoners on hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay.
New in the chart is an ad for whisky brand Johnnie Walker starring a computer-generated Bruce Lee. It has been shared more than 10,000 times in the past seven days.
The actor and martial arts expert, who died 40-years ago tomorrow (20 July), was resurrected using CGI by Bartle Bogle Hegarty China for the ad.
The chart, produced in collaboration with Unruly, tracks the number of shares of ads across Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere. Ads older than 30-days are not included.
