Published on .
Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new and trending TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, a company that catalogs, tags and measures activity around TV ads in real time. The New Releases here ran on TV for the first time yesterday. The Most Engaging ads are showing sustained social heat, ranked by SpotShare scores reflecting the percent of digital activity associated with each one over the past week. See the methodology here.
Among the new releases, Lowe's serves up another in its series of wry how-to spots with a new installment titled "How to Make a Snowman While Eating a Turkey Leg" (spoiler: it's surprisingly easy!), while Google's Android emphasizes the diversity of its ecosystem ("All kinds of phones for all kinds of folks") in a quirky animated commercial. And Barnes & Noble wants to remind you to give books as Christmas gifts (but you were already planning to, right?).
