Only new ad executions considered, airing weeks of May 28 to June 24. The Recall Score is the percentage of TV viewers who can recall within 24 hours the brand of an ad they were exposed to during the normal course of viewing TV. These scores are then indexed against the mean score for all new ads during the period (Recall Index). 100 equals average.
Now compare to this listing of Most-Liked New TV Ads (Advertising Age). Puff Daddy is #1. Big Brain Academy (not sure if 15 or 30-second spot) remains on list. Pamela Anderson drops off. Maybe the using sex to sell satellite is poor idea? Kmart can't get a break, unless people remember the commercial and go shop.
I really like that American Express is going to fund a user submitted project. However, I think The Members Project commercial is silly. Maybe that is why people like it.
Do you have any opinions of or preferences for any of the advertisements listed above? Any ads you think should be on the list, but are not? Come on, I know you watch TV.
