Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Pillsbury, State Farm, Smirnoff 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 over the weekend.

A few highlights: Green Bay Packers players Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews are friends—actually, "best friends," as Matthews sees it (Rodgers maybe sees it differently)—in a State Farm ad. Ted Danson turns up in a Smirnoff spot to call attention to it being "America's most-awarded brand in vodka over the past decade." And Pillsbury serves up a holiday-themed commercial that celebrates "the things that can't be bought"—including family traditions and memories—although it seems from the various product shots tucked into the ad's various heartwarming scenes that Pillsbury does want you to buy its dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls.
