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, Old Spice brings another round of the Terry Crews/Isaiah Mustafa feud, Colonel Sanders hawks KFC on a merry-go-round, Samsung shows how easy it is to shop for your favorite things with Android smartphones, and Honda goes old-school in a two-minute spot using stop-motion animation that takes the viewer through the company's history. Finally, Apple Music brings Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson and Mary J. Blige together to show that mixtapes are not a thing of the past -- but boyfriends might be.
