Scottie Pippen: 'I'm the Greatest Chicago Bull of All Time' (Watch the Newest Ads on TV)

A Round-Up of Just-Aired Spots From Foot Locker, Aflac, Toyota, Volkswagen and Walmart

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new and trending TV commercials tracked by, 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, the Aflac Duck does yoga (badly) while a young bachelor uses his Volkswagen Golf to haul a bunch of stuff back to his apartment to prep for a date. And Charles Barkley offers James Harden some career advice in a new Foot Locker commercial. "You just need a short memory," he tells him, right before consulting with Scottie Pippen -- who definitely seems to have a short memory.
