The top 20 ads of 2013 are dominated by the technology and fast food categories, with an underlying theme of local humour - advertising and entertainment are inextricably linked. People respond more positively to advertising they like and consider exciting, particularly in terms of brand-linked memorability and impact. The worst emotional reaction that an ad can evoke is indifference. If people say they are unimpressed by an ad then it is highly unlikely to do anything for the advertised brand.

Our study finds that the winning ads scored high on enjoyment, involvement and positive emotions. Great creative has long been at the heart of successful advertising, and good creativity helps grab attention, connects with its audience, makes an ad memorable and easily recalled. It makes a brand seem more interesting, helping frame the brand experience. And good Creative makes people pay attention!
