Apple Spots Drive Over 21,000 Social Engagements

By Karen Fratti 

There were nine new ads that debuted this week and only one holdover from last. Among the newcomers were two from insurance company GEICO, two iPhone ads, and three automotive spots.

GEICO owned the overall most-engaging ad of the week with “Operation: It’s What You Do,” the latest entry in the company’s “It’s What You Do” campaign, powered by 2.4 million online views and over 11,000 social actions. Its sister ad, “Scapegoat: It’s What You Do” debuted in eighth.

Apple’s iPhone appeared twice on the list with the “Hardware & Software” spot, and again in fourth with the “Loved” ad. Together, they racked up 1.3 million online views and over 21,000 social actions.

The only incumbent from the week prior was Honda’s “Buddy Holly” ad, which rose from fifth to third on the strength of over 800,000 online views and 8,000 social actions. It was one of three automotive ads in the top 10 top-engaging, with the others being Infiniti’s “Vacation” spot spoofing the classic Chevy Chase flick (and upcoming Warner Bros. reboot), and Volkswagon’s “Hot Deals” ad featuring three sassy elderly ladies that we’re likely to see again on this list soon.
