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, fans of superheroes and sub sandwiches can combine their passions at Subway, while Samsung Mobile compiles favorable comments from Forbes, Mashable and Wired for its Galaxy S6 Edge. And Microsoft premieres its HP Spectre x360, the convertible laptop you can fold over and use as a tablet. The spot, "What You've Been Waiting For," shows the laptop performing some Gabby Douglas-level flips as it falls through the air.

Meanwhile, NBA star Joakim Noah, of the Chicago Bulls, returns in the third installment of "Joakim Noah Says the Joakimiest Things to Kids" for Foot Locker. In this episode Noah tackles the topics of color perception and lying eyes.
