UK Top Shazamed Ads: Mercedes-Benz, Sky Atlantic and Ryanair take over the chart

Mercedes-Benz has entered The Drum's Shazam chart with 'Hard Time' by Swedish pop-soul singer Seinabo Sey.

The track, which features in the brand's TV campaign to promote its new A-Class series, has earned the car company third place.

Sky Atlantic swoops into fourth place thanks to 'Wicked Game' by Fallulah.

The cover version of Chris Isaak’s classic 90s hit is the soundtrack to a first-look trailer of the channel's award-winning US drama The Affair.

And Norwegian synthpop band A-ha's 'Take On Me' sees Ryanair enter at number 10.

The cheesy tune appears in Ryanair's new ad to celebrate its 30th anniversary, which uses a split screen effect to evoke memories of the 80s and show how much the airline has progressed over the years.

Online retailer Very remains in the top spot for the second week in a row with 'Pizza Guy' by Touch Sensitive.

The charts are based on the number of times each ad has been Shazamed over the past week using music identification app Shazam.
