Watch the newest ads on TV from Samsung, Bud, Wendy's 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 yesterday.

A few highlights: Wendy's serves up what it calls a "short and sweet" spot that shows all the ingredients that go into its Berry Burst Chicken Salad. New York Knicks legend John Starks talks about being undrafted back in 1988 in an emotional Budweiser commercial that ends with the tagline, "This Bud's for the long shot. This Bud's for you." And Samsung shows how the things it makes—including phones, TVs and refrigerators—"bring family together."
