Watch the newest ads on TV from Hotels.com, Groupon, DirecTV and more

By 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: Groupon presents its spokeswoman Tiffany Haddish enjoying a front-row seat at a show where the (gold lamé) pants come off. DirecTV offers some signs—involving toast, crop circles and scissors—for those who've been waiting to quit cable but needed a nudge. And Hotels.com's Captain Obvious slides into a ski lodge with his mini horse, who obviously gets "a little hoarse" in the cold, to promote the brand's rewards program.
