Kantar Millward Brown's Best Liked Ads list celebrates South Africa's favourite TV commercials. These are the ads that have been rated as the best liked by the South African audience whom we believe to be the most important critic - the person who ultimately chooses to buy your brand or not.
We see storytelling emerging as the central protagonist, with wonderful local nuances and emotion used to cement the memory and brand association. Food dominates the top 10, with four fast food outlets grabbing the consumers’ attention. Cars also feature strongly, with three of the car ads by global agencies, highlighting how well these types of ads can travel across borders.
