Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Google, Hulu, 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: Hulu serves up another in a series of commercials starring Anna Kendrick, who marvels at all the shows she can choose from on the streaming service. TGI Fridays says "We've changed the whole conversation about ribs." And Google says you should "Ask more of your phone" in a spot for its Pixel 2 smartphone set to the ridiculously catchy Danger Twins song "Make It Look Easy."
