Door Dash, a Major League Soccer partner, scored big with its catchy and clever ad inspired by soccer fans, and Kia's sponsorship of the World Cup paid off. The car company's ad leading into the World Cup championship game grabbed the most attention from men in the quarter.  Carvana rounds out our list of top ads for the quarter, with a personal narrative that engaged female viewers best.
