TVision's Top Ads, by Attention

To rank H1 2019's top 5 ads, we leveraged Creative Attention Score (CAS), also known as "Creative Breakthrough". These are the brand ads that drove the greatest audience engagement - isolated from the effects of media placement. And since only TVision can measure person-level data, we broke out H1 2019's Top Ads for Women and H1 2019's Top Ads for Men

H1 2019's Top Ads - Overall

#1: Volvo - 'Follow No One' (114.0 Creative Attention Score): Throughout the commercial, Volvo paired a narrated reading of an E.E. Cummings quote on individuality with images of the open road, successfully capturing the feelings of escape and adventure its luxury sedan is meant to inspire. 

 

#2: Bounty - 'Chopsticks' (112.0 Creative Attention Score): It turns out dumplings, cute dogs, and Bounty are a recipe for attention. The comedic story keeps viewers paying attention until the real "winner" is revealed.
