There were few Olympics ads - Channel 4's "meet the superhumans" was the most-talked-about online, but it's classified here as a "promo", so it doesn't make the table.
Gocompare.com's Stuart Pearce spot was the most-remembered, but the most-liked category was headed by the Comparethemarket.com spot, according to data from Nielsen and NM Incite.
McDonald's was the sole Olympic-themed ad here, while Aldi and Sky managed to appear in both the most-remembered and most-liked top five.
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.
