Have You Ever Wondered About The Birds And Bees … Of Sandwiches?

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 over the weekend. 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, Sears takes a jab at Home Depot and Lowe's, where as many of us know, it can be difficult to find a salesperson when you need one. The spot features a couple's struggle to find someone who works at the store (but not in the fertilizer department). And as the weekend began last Friday -- 7/24 -- Ram honored the men and women who work 24/7.

Meanwhile, Arby's has the answer to every parent's most feared question from their kid: Where do sandwiches come from?
