Watch the Newest Ads on TV From GoDaddy, McDonald's, Volvo 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 millions of smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.

A few highlights: Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman tells the story of a hapless woman named Kate who takes a break from her troubled life by eating Wonderful Pistachios-brand pistachios. A grandmother owns up to serving McDonald's Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Tenders for dinner: "Finally I've found chicken tenders that can pass as mine, which is nice, because I've got better things to do." And GoDaddy contrasts the difficulty of "adulting" with the ease of building a website "in under an hour" with its site-builder.
