Watch the Newest Ads on TV From KFC, Taco Bell, Geico 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 10 million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time over the weekend.

A few highlights: Pro golfer Daniel Berger plugs Geico insurance (very indirectly) with a little, uh, help from his "distant cousin twice removed." A guy named Jason starts to get over getting dumped by Jenny by "filling the void with seasoned beef, hearty potatoes and warm nacho cheese sauce," courtesy of a Potato-Rito from Taco Bell. And a couple of emo/goth kids delight (sort of) over a $10 KFC Chicken Share "bucket of fun."
