In the iSpot rankings of the most-viewed automotive commercials from June 18-24, Volkswagen takes first place with a short (15 second) World Cup-themed ad expressing condolences to U.S. fans given their team’s failure to qualify, and urging them to cheer for Iceland instead.
Once again Chevrolet owns two spots on the chart. In second place, its enduring ad showcasing the scars that Silverado 1500s have weathered in their years on (and off!) the road. The company’s fifth-place commercial has also been in the ranking before. In it, a spokesman highlights three SUV models that represent three big stages of a relationship: moving in together (the Trax), the first baby (the Equinox) and a multi-child family plus dogs (the Traverse).
Land Rover’s third place ad for the ’18 Range Rover Velar has the best iSpot Attention Index (117) in the ranking, getting 17% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
NBA fan-favorite Stephen Curry stars in Infiniti’s No. 4 commercial for the ’19 QX50. As he cruises through dark streets, Curry proclaims that he’s not always the “nice guy” the media makes him out to be: he has “a darker side...a badder side” — but that doesn’t stop him from picking up the milk on the way home.
