Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Ram Trucks, Purina, Fandango 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: World champion barrel racer Brittany Pozzi and her horse star in a gritty, black-and-white ad from Purina that calls attention to the fact that the brand familiar to millions of cat and dog owners also makes horse feed. Fandango suggests that you avoid disappointment at the box office and buy tickets in advance for "Pitch Perfect 3" (in theaters Dec. 22) now. And Ram Trucks shows its sturdy vehicles powering through snow and ice to help promote its year-end Big Finish sales event.
