A Lincoln commercial featuring actor Matthew McConaughey promoting the brand’s Summer Invitation Sales Event ranks as the most-viewed automotive commercial for the week of July 22.
iSpot.tv, the always-on TV ad measurement and attribution company, each week tracks the ads that have racked up the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The Lincoln ad with a voiceover from the Oscar-winning actor tells customers they can get special deals on the ’19 MKC. The ad has the best iSpot Attention Index (149) in the ranking, getting 49% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
Chevrolet lets the ’19 Blazer speak for itself in the No. 2 commercial, while Subaru’s third-place ad shows how its ’19 Ascent, with EyeSight and Pre-Collision Braking, can give drivers a second chance in dangerous situations.
Fourth place goes to Ford’s high-energy promotion for its Hurry Up & Save Sales Event, offering 20% savings on select models and complimentary maintenance through FordPass Rewards.
Closing out the ranking is another spot from Chevrolet, this time featuring individuals and families from all walks of life explaining why they switched to Chevy. Right now, special deals are available on the ’19 Traverse during the company’s All-Star Open House.
