The Viral Chart: Gangnam mania, Sesame Street's Birdwalk Empire and Samsung pokes fun at Apple fans

Sesame Street's Birdwalk EmpireSesame Street's Birdwalk Empire

Fear not if you're fed up with Gangnam Style. The viral pop sensation refuses to go away but there's plenty more good stuff to tuck into in this week's Viral Charts - including an amusing lesson in how to eat a cupcake like a gentleman.

Let's get the Gangnam mania out of the way first, though. Topping the Brand chart this week with 30,000 shares is yet another tribute to the insanely catchy pop song as the stars of popular viral 'Gangnam Style Mom' perform their dance moves live on the Ellen Show.

Elsewhere in the Brand chart we have a cheeky ad from Samsung poking fun at iPhone devotees, Sesame Street's take on Boardwalk Empire and a poignant new campaign for the British Red Cross.

Shooting straight into number one in the User Generated Content chart is The Worst Movie Death Scene Ever, which does exactly what it says on the tin. The wonderfully over the top killing from a 1970s Turkish film has racked up more than 15 million views and 64 thousand shares.

The charts are compiled with the Viral Ad Network and are based on the number of shares each video has received on social media over the last seven days.
