NBA Finals Drive 2 Million Views of New Apple Music Ad

By Karen Fratti Comment

iSpot TV’s weekly list of top ads is in and Supercell’s Clash of Clan is still on it. There are some older ads this week, from Toyota, and only two newbies, from Honda and Apple. Our iSpot spokesperson said over email that:

Apple led the charge among newcomers, debuting at third with its “History of Sound” ad in support of the recently unveiled Apple Music service. The spot generated over 2 million online views and more than 30,000 social actions, thanks to airing against the NBA Basketball Finals and the CMT Music Awards Show.

Honda’s “Great Thinking Inside” for its HR-V model was the only other newcomer, entering the list at sixth with 1.5 million online views and over 16,000 social actions. Despite heavy spending on both the NBA and NHL Finals, its largest engagement ratings came from TK’s CSI.
