What's Stephen Colbert Doing Hanging Out With a Stoned Eagle in Colorado?
Plus, More Fresh TV Commercials From Bud Light, Progressive, Red Robin and Verizon
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 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, Bud Light kicks off its "Whatever, USA" promotion, part of a summer campaign that Ad Age's E.J. Schultz previewed yesterday, while Red Robin says its Banzai Burger, which features a teriyaki-glazed patty topped with grilled pineapple, is "to die for" (spoiler: a sword is involved in this spot). And Stephen Colbert visits Colorado, where he munches on Wonderful Pistachios ("green, natural and available without prescription in all 50 states") and hangs out with a stoned eagle.
