Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Intel, Gap, Google 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: Gap mounts an elaborate song-and-dance production to ring in the Christmas shopping season (Adrianne Pasquarelli has the backstory: "Janelle Monae Fronts a Festive Musical Number for Gap's Holiday Campaign"). Barbie, Ken, LEGO Batman, Superman and My Little Pony sit down for Thanksgiving dinner in a Target commercial. And Intel serves up another one of its ads starring Jim "Big Bang Theory" Parsons; this time Parsons is a ghost version of himself who shows LeBron James his "holiday future."
