Carl's Jr. + 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force' = Eww (Watch the Newest Ads on TV)
Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots Right Now
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, the NBA uses a bunch of its stars, including LeBron James and Blake Griffin, to encourage you to download the NBA Game Time app, while Sprint also celebrates basketball season with an ad plugging the Sprint Family Share Pack data plan (all the better for streaming games on mobile). And Carl's Jr. has Carl Brutananadilewski from Adult Swim's "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" endorsing the fast-food chain's fresh baked buns in a spot that is pretty much guaranteed to gross you out.
