Cadillac finished No.1 for the week of May 16 on the back of the 2022 PGA Championship, which delivered over a third of the overall impressions for the spot “Fortune Favors the Fearless.”
Cadillac takes the top position iSpot.tv’s latest ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads that have generated the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The General Motors brand finished No.1 for the week of May 16 on the back of the 2022 PGA Championship, which delivered over a third of the overall impressions for the spot “Fortune Favors the Fearless.” Meanwhile, the previous leader, “Family’s New Alexa” from Buick, slipped to No.2 despite heavy advertising during both NBA and NHL playoff games.
Cadillac also scored with iSpot’s Ace Metrix survey respondents, with the best brand-recognition rating among the five highest-ranked ads at 90% (the percentage of viewers who knew it was a Cadillac ad after viewing it). However, Buick claimed the highest overall Ace Metrix rating with a score 12.4% above industry norms and a persuasion score 10.8% above industry norms.
Infiniti, at third, also leaned heavily on the PGA Championship, while fourth-place Kia focused on the NBA playoffs. Only last-place Lincoln didn’t make sporting events a factor in its ad placement, leaning instead on news, with Fox & Friends contributing the greatest number of impressions.
