Cannes 2012: the most shared ads on the Film Lions shortlist
As Cannes waits for the winner of the Film Grand Prix to be revealed on Saturday night, here's a look at the runners and riders' form in the viral stakes.
From the shortlist announced this morning social video specialist Unruly ranked the top ten films according to the number of times they have been shared on Facebook and the blogosphere.
Although few ads on this list have a big chance of winning the Grand Prix - imagine the uproar were 'Catvertising' to triumph - at least two of the most fancied entrants are in there.
While the ranking gives older campaigns an unfair advantage, it's worth noting the leader turns out to be a film that first surfaced only two months ago.
