UK Top Shazamed Ads: Samsung takes the top spot from Apple and McDonald's enters the chart

Samsung has taken the top spot from Apple with it’s ‘Quality Assurance’ ad showing the rigorous tests the new Galaxy has been put through following the controversy surrounding its explosive Note 7 model.

Elsewhere there is only one new entry from McDonald’s, which has nabbed a respectable eighth place.

The one minute short from the food giant shows a range of people trying to order coffee from independent cafes but struggling with the names, prices and sizes on offer in order to promote the brand’s McCafe range. The spot is backed cleverly by Prince Buster’s ‘Madness’.
