Mazda’s “Carried Away” ad narrated by actor Aaron Paul claims the No.1 position in the weekly Most Engaging Auto Ads rankings, powered for WardsAuto by iSpot.tv. The enduringly popular spot has made several appearances on the top ads list over the past several weeks.

Honda’s commercial about a square world moves up to second place from fifth, while Ford is back on the chart at No.3 after a week off. In fourth place is another Mazda ad, with music by Patsy Cline. It also has made repeat appearances in the top 5 and has had more than 2,480 national airings to date.

Finally, Cadillac comes in at No.5 with a visually captivating commercial that seems to be playing in reverse, until the ʼ16 CT6 comes on screen and drives the world forward.
