Clean & Clear's Acceptance Speeches Steal the Show at the VMAs

It's the Latest TV Ads; 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 over the weekend. 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, hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky tries to choose between Samsung's new Galaxy S6 Edge and Note 5 smartphones. Spoiler alert: He loves them both. (Samsung could use more of that.) Meanwhile, in DraftKings' new ad, fantasy football players can't tear themselves away from the game at brunch with the girls, at a child's birthday party and even in the shower. And Clean & Clear spotlights young girls who embrace their differences, declaring that "the best acceptance speeches are the one's we give ourselves" in an uplifting ad that broke during the MTV Video Music Awards last night.
