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 yesterday. 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, a pair of amateur mechanics transform into fearless wrestlers for AutoZone. Lowe's continues its spots featuring paint jobs that render onlookers speechless. And Food Network stars Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark serve up Pinnacle vodka drinks for Ulive.com, the digital lifestyle channel.

The most engaging ads, meanwhile, suggest a lot of online interest for Adobe's new happy birthday to itself, the week-old Adidas campaign that's been dominating our Viral Video Chart and Android's even older unlikely-animal-friends clip.
