Flo Goes Retro in Progressive's Latest Spot

Plus, Five of the Most Digitally Engaging Spots on TV Right Now

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, a job applicant pulls a switcheroo on his interviewer thanks to Old Spice; a boy who breaks everything he touches finds the Subaru Legacy is "built to last"; and a man learns the "right" way to eat a KitKat the hard way.

State Farm continues its "Here to Help Life Go Right" campaign, with a couple discovering the joys -- and dangers -- of living near wild mustangs.

Finally, Flo goes retro, appearing as a teacher schooling a student in how differences make us special, in the latest spot from Progressive.
