Watch the newest ads on TV from Geico, Wells Fargo, Dos Equis and more

Published on .

Every weekday we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than eight million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time over the weekend.

A few highlights: Geico serves up a fresh cut of a comical ad starring pro golfer Daniel Berger and his (fictional) distant cousin Dougal (various version of this campaign have previously run online and on TV). Wells Fargo says that it's working to earn back your trust (it doesn't get specific about its recent troubles, but here's a taste via Politico: "Wells Fargo slammed with $1B fine"). And Shaquille O'Neal helps JC Penney hype its selection of men's "big & tall" fashions.
