By 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, Target gives us a world where kids turn into superheroes on the playground and Kia demonstrates its Sportage model can be useful for all sorts of camping trips.

Smirnoff Ice busts out its campaign for new line Ice Electric that features the hard partying, man-stealing 87-year-old Instagram star Baddie Winkle.

Coca-Cola rolls out the next phase of its "Share a Coke" campaign -- song lyrics placed on packaging -- with a spot showing young scientists celebrating tournament success with "All I Do Is Win" botttles.

Finally, Apple Music pushes Drake's new album, "Views," available exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes, with a moody black and white spot that shows the artist at work.
