Reality check - September 2012

Adam & Eve/DDB's latest spot for John Lewis was the most-liked ad of September and also managed to garner a healthy percentage of online conversations about advertising. Otherwise, there was precious little crossover between ads that were remembered by viewers and those that were liked or chatted about online.

Samsung won entries in two tables, while Aldi continued its run of making at least one of the tables with a cheese-related spot from McCann Manchester. It was Colgate, though, with a former Campaign Turkey of the Week, that attracted the highest recall among consumers, according to data from Nielsen and NM Incite.

The "most-remembered" score is the percentage of viewers who can recall within 24 hours the storyline of an ad. These scores are indexed against a mean score for all new ads, with 100 representing the mean. The "most-liked" score is the percentage of viewers who liked a spot indexed against the mean score of 100.
