The Change the Tune video has been shared 56,748 times according to Unruly, a UK-based video ad-tech company. That’s comfortably ahead of Labour’s campaign ad featuring Hobbit star Martin Freeman, which has received 28,204 shares.

The Green Party’s effort has, so far, been watched by over 380,000 people on YouTube since it was put up on Wednesday, while Labour’s video has only mustered 256,756 after having gone live on March 30.
