Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Samsung, Google, Hulu 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 10 million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.

A few highlights: Samsung serves up a spot that focuses rather adorably on young love—and how its Note 8 can be used to send annotated images to your beloved. Anna Kendrick talks about how Hulu "is gonna change your life" in an ad that ends with the line "It's not a dream—it's tv come true." And Google tries to divert some attention from iPhone hype with a commercial that subtly promotes its Pixel 2 phone, set for release on Oct. 4.
