The Drum's Shazam chart is based on the number of times each ad has been Shazamed over the past week using the music identification app.

This weeks sees one new entry in at number six, knocking Rightmove's 'Life's Steps' campaign off the ladder.

Volkswagen's short video sets out a young boys life adventures from getting his first bike up until he gets his first car.

Along the way there are plenty of bumps and bruises, with his father at hand with a first aid kit, trips to the hospital and a tow truck to pull his motorbike out of the river. Rightly so, dad is a bit nervous when his son takes his first car trip in the new Polo, almost pulling into a truck and just missing a young woman on the road.
