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, Olympic athletes including Ashton Eaton, Kerri Walsh Jennings and Simone Biles board a United Airlines flight heading to the Games in Rio; Apple's spot features the voice of Maya Angelou with a montage of family photos that were shot on an iPhone; footballer Dez Bryant has a dream that he is basketball star Michael Jordan in the latest Jordan ad; and a man in a trophy case explains the rules of the game "Clash Royale."
Finally, Austrian-German actor Christoph Waltz examines the busy lifestyle of Americans in a humorous Samsung Galaxy Note 7 spot.
