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, Nissan serves up a fresh 45-second broadcast cut of the "Heisman House: Mini Johnny" video (starring Johnny Manziel, Charles Woodson and George Rogers) that debuted on YouTube in late August, while Nintendo informs nostalgic gamers that they can still "Settle it in 'Smash'!" And Western Digital suggests that you bring the "cloud" home with its My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage device.
