Apple's In-House Ads Are Scoring Lower Than Ads Created By Outside Agency

Apple's homegrown commercials aren't performing as well as ads made by its longtime agency TBWAMedia Arts Labs, reports Bloomberg.

Based on data from Ace Metrix, who surveys TV watchers to determine how persuasive and entertaining an ad is, Apple's in-house ads have received a cooler reception from viewers on average. Apple started moving ad development in-house following some conflict with its usual agency.

The two best performing ads that Apple released since late last year have been from TBWAMedia Arts Lab. The top ad showed musicians using iPhone apps to produce a cover of 'Gigantic' by the Pixies. In second was an ad that showed a teen making a home movie during the holidays. The ad scored well in "likeability" and "relevance" but not as well in convincing consumers to purchase an iPhone.

The highest-scoring ad from the Apple team is its most recent. The spot highlights how iPhone owners can use the device to exercise, set to the strains of an old-timey song called "Chicken Fat." It earned a score of 611 from Ace Metrix, not far behind TBWA's holiday ad. The worst-performing commercial in the past year, done by the in-house team, was a high-spirited spot for the iPhone 5c that showed a wide variety of people saying hello with Apple's lower-priced phone.

Overall the in-house team's ad scored an average of 548 compared to 580 for the ads made by TBWAMedia Arts Lab.

I think their new ads are for the lack if a better word, "stupid". The wannabe pixies one is just down right annoying, "gigantic...blah blah blahhhh". The composing one is just well incredibly boring...

You're a gigantic gullable asshole. You lack for a better word, git. The defensive fckers got nothing better to do than brag like that.

You call me a "git"? Yet you insult me and call me gullible? Where am I believing anything being said? I made my own rightful opinion. The only "git" here is obviously you, learn to write or attempt to write something correctly. Who is being defensive now? Right...
