Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Lexus, Groupon, Febreze 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 notable ads: In a co-promotion from Lexus and Marvel, a 2018 Lexus LC 500 has a guest-starring role in a clip from Marvel's "Black Panther" (in theaters Feb. 16). Party City throws some serious shade at people who eat gluten-free snacks—and specifically a "gross" woman named Tina—in a spot that promotes something called the "inflatable snack stadium." And Groupon serves up another one of its commercials starring spokeswoman Tiffany Haddish—a Groupon user herself, she insists.

UPDATE: "Party City Apologizes for Calling Gluten-Free People 'Gross'," per Newsweek.

TV Impressions - Total TV ad impressions delivered for the brand or spot.
Est. TV Spend - Amount spent on TV airings for the brand's spots.
Attention Score - Measures the propensity of consumers to interrupt an ad play on TV. The higher the score, the more complete views. Actions that interrupt an ad play include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV.

For example, an attention index of 125 means that there are 25% fewer interrupted ad plays compared to the average.
