Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Alfa Romeo, Old Navy, Verizon and More

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than seven million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.

A few highlights: Two Alfa Romeos engage in an oddly sexy "dance" on ice, in their process showing off their advanced all-wheel drive technology. Buffalo Wild Wings says that it's "the home of the fan." And a bunch of neighbors—all of them unusually good-looking and with unusually good singing voices—emerge from their homes to deliver an impromptu medley of Christmas songs and pop standards for Old Navy.
