Samsung wins most effective commercial in Q1 for Galaxy Note ad
Picking the best ad aired on national TV so far in the year is not an easy task, but with plenty of important events companies like Apple, Doritos, M&Ms and others have traditionally had brilliant entries. This year, the best, most effective ad aired on US TV was made for Samsung. Called “The best of a phone and tablet,” this Samsung Galaxy Note ad took the top spot outranking all competitors, according to ad judges from Ace Metrix.

It scored an Ace Score of 686 on a scale of zero to 950, and that was leaps ahead of Apple commercials the best of which had 618.

You can check out the ad itself below if you’ve missed it. It focuses solely on the Galaxy Note and the benefits of its screen - no bashing of rivals, no voice narration, all simple. Do you like what you see? What’s your favorite ad so far?

My favorite commercial is the Geico commercial where the guy is singing karaoke trying to get chicks. That song has been in my head for so long.
