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 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.

This week, for State Farm, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reminds a referee the importance of double-checking everything (especially your microphone); Old Spice has Terry Crews invading Isaiah Mustafa's commercial, Slim Jim's policemen try to make a lineup a little different than usual and Colonel Sanders fills up a family of four in a limousine (seriously) with $20 for KFC. Finally, Carl's Jr. has Texan model Elle Evans fighting Mexican beauty Alejandra Guilmant in a beach volleyball match to promote the new Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger.
