Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Coke, Royal Caribbean, KFC and More

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than seven million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.

A few highlights: Coca-Cola wants you to know that Coca-Cola Zero Sugar—the successor to Coke Zero—"really tastes like a Coke." Royal Caribbean, the cruise line brand, says that it's "not a vacation factory" in an ad that hypes "adventures from $549." And the latest Colonel Sanders brags about finding "a cheaper way to make commercials" (spoiler: a green screen is involved) for KFC.
