Pergo Floors Are Put to the Test As Pets Get Out of Control

It's the Latest TV Ads; Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots Right Now

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, frustrated travellers text and tweet about fees and obstacles associated with using their credit card miles until pitchwoman Jennifer Gardner presents a simpler option in a spot for Capital One's Venture card. Meanwhile, Adidas-owned TaylorMade tips its hat to PGA champion golfer Jason Day in the latest "Made for Greatness" ad.

And a beloved pet gets down and dirty with his canine pals while his masters are out of the house. The ruckus-making dogs rush to clean up as the family pulls into the driveaway. And the owners are none the wiser thanks to the Pergo flooring, which is left unscathed.
