Watch the newest ads on TV from Frito Lay, Subaru, McDonald'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: McDonald's promotes the fact that it's teamed up with National Geographic for Happy Meals that include Nat Geo plush toys and Weird But True fact cards. A family going through a Frito Lay multipack of different kinds of chips has to review the all-important household "dibs" rules. And Subaru has a theory about why Subaru Forester owners "always seem so happy."
