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, Yoplait brings us the terribly sad story of a boy whose best friend is abducted by a giant bird -- but he's able to bounce back quickly thanks to Yoplait yogurt, available in kid-friendly Despicable Me, Hello Kitty and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles packaging. Wyndham serves up a feel-good spot that might make you wish you were on vacation right this second. And if you feel slightly guilty about laughing at that Yoplait spot with its cartoonish, Edward Gorey-esque tragedy, you could always take the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals' suggestion that you "Put your money where the miracles are."
