The Always ad, "like a girl" by Leo Burnett, aims to empower young girls and rewrite the rules of negative connotations associated with being a girl. It has been shared 536,519 times in the last seven days.

The Activia ad, which is Shakira’s video for her single La La La and was directed by Jaume de Laiguana, now sits at number two. It was at the top of the Campaign Viral Chart for the previous four weeks.

Evolve "playthings" by McCann New York also makes its debut onto the chart. The embarrassing comical ad features two young boys play fighting, unaware they're using sex toys, in an attempt to warn people about guns.

Nike Football, Adidas and Hello Flo all remain in the top ten, although each moves down the chart from last week.
