Ace Metric looked at the ads that ran during the Super Bowl. Apparently one in five TV ads in the States are funny, and Super Bowl ads are three times funnier than the rest. But none of this makes much difference in selling stuff, according to new research by syndicated ad-testing firm Ace Metrix
The Index compares brand to average, so Doritos ads had 6.35 times as many people who found them funny as an average ad in the study. The Ace effectiveness score takes into account a variety of rating factors, including how much consumers like the ad, pay attention to it, and are persuaded by it to want the product or service.
Find out more about this study on AdAge. Makes interesting reading.
Does anyone know of similar studies in the UK?
