Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Google, eBay, Firefox 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: eBay positions itself as a place to find truly surprising gifts—as opposed to boring, expected gifts—for the holidays. Google shows off the sleek curves of its Pixel 2 phone along with quotes from some rave reviews (e.g., "Sexiest camera on the planet," per VentureBeat). And Firefox hypes the latest update of its web browser.
