Jon Bon Jovi Turns Back Time in DirectTV's New Spot

Plus, the Five 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 latest releases, Old Spice Hair Care recommends going all in when using its products and Adult Swim Games promotes updates to its smartphone game based on the show "Rick and Morty."

Two pro golfers front new ads, with Jason Day talking about what it takes to be No. 1 for Canadian bank RBC and newcomer Bryson DeChambeau demonstrating his scientific approach to the game for Bridgestone Golf.

Finally, DirecTV recruits Jon Bon Jovi to help a couple "turn back time" by catching up on the TV shows they missed -- but he goes a step further and suggests a few more lifestyle changes.
