Insulation From Lowe's Will Literally Shrink Your Bills

Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots Right Now

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, Aflac's latest spot features people training in a gym. (Previous Aflac ads featuring athletes include its spot with Yao Ming and Yogi Berra, who died yesterday at 90.) In a Match.com spot, a man is so excited about discovering a "cute" marathon runner that he vows to download the Match.com app immediately. And insulation from Lowe's literally shrinks your heating bills, apparently.
